Scandinavia, the homeland of our forefathers, calls to mind the myths of 
the great god Odin, the romantic legends of the Skalds (the great poets), and 
the strange tales of the courageous Vikings who ruled the Northern Seas. 

Their genealogy had its beginnings in the mysterious Gothic tribes who 
formerly lived around the Black Sea and, before that, dwelt in a still more 
eastern province. About 70 B.C, Odin arrived in Scandinavia, having jour- 
neyed from Asgard on the Don River in Southern Russia, He and various tribes 
wandered up to the northern coasts of the Baltic Sea and spread into Denmark, 
Sweden, and Norway. The sons of Odin divided Scandinavia into equal parts: 
Heimdal in SkSne, Niord in Sweden, Seming in Norway, Balder in Angel (Schles- 
vig), and Skjold in Sjelland (Zealand) and Jutland, the latter becoming the 
head of an illustrious generation of kings o 

Descendants of these people sailed in their small boats to Scotland and 
Ireland and ventured even further upon the unknown, cold and stormy seas to 
the shores of Iceland, Greenland, and the American continent before the time 
of Columbus. They conquered England, Scotlandj, and Ireland, and ravaged 
Brittany and Normandy. In so doing, they influenced the social and cultural 
legacies of these people, Coiintless names of towns and communities in these 
regions are of Nordic origin. Furthermore, many individuals of English 
descent have ancestral history closely associated with that of Scandinavia, 
for a Danish dynasty once ruled over their native land„ William the Conqueror, 
the founder of the present line of British monarchs, was, himself, of Scandin- 
avian blood. 

The Viking period is usually reckoned from the 8th century to the middle 
of the 11th century. In their various far-flung settlements, stone monuments 
with Runic inscriptions remain to tell the stories of their deeds and valor. 
The l6-letter "Riines" were used as a form of writing and comra-anicationo By 
means of these inscriptions the Norsemen recorded the series of kings, family 
pedigrees, and histories of adventure and achievement. Likewise, the song 
ballads and poems of the Skaldic bards memorialized family genealogies and 
tales of Scandinavian prowess. 

And why did the Vikings sail to far-off regions? It was not only to win 
honor and renown, but to obtain the necessities of life. Those who lived in 
the more Nordic regions were able to carry on little agricultures fishing, 
hunting^ and breeding of cattle were the chief occupations, Norway, with its 
backbone of hard granite, and its 1,000-mile-long, fiordal coastline extend- 
ing far into the arctic regions, lent no more than six percent of its rugged 
and frigid terrain to cultivation. In Sweden, the forest-covered mountains 
in the north, and the flat, fertile fields in the south owned by the aristoc- 
racy who farmed the region for centuries, presented a less stark picture than 
that of Norway, but there yet was not enough food and wealth to satisfy the 
needs of all. While Denmark, on the other hand, was mostly level and fertile 
land, it became densely populated^ in an area only one-fourth the size of 
Utah, almost every acre of ground came under cultivation. Hence, in all 
three countries the lack of land and of comfortable living conditions created 
pressure for colonization elsewhere o 


Christianity was introduced into Scandinavia and widely accepted after 
the Danish king was converted in 8260 Paganism gradually disappeared, and 
the new faith became more evidenced in the lives and actions of the Scandi- 
navians. After the l6th century, Lutheranism spread rapidly, and eventually 
became the State Church with a following of 90 per cent of the Scandinavian 
population o Parish clerks started keeping vital records of members of the 
Lutheran Church as early as 1^72 in some of the parishes, which records have 
proven invaluable for genealogical purposes « 

For some time the three Scandinavian countries, Denmark, Sweden, and 
Norway, were united in one kingdom, Sweden broke away in 1523, but Norway 
continued under Danish kings until l8lli„ Then, as a result of the Napoleonic 
Wars, Norway was detached from Denmark and became united with Sweden, Away 
from the world's great highways, these two northernmost countries were able 
to avoid some of the wars and aggression,, However, Denmark, located as it was 
near the great continental states, warring against each other, had difficult 
problems in maintaining her neutrality and independence. In I8U8 there was a 
rebellion in the southern provinces of Denraark--the duchies of Schlesvig- 
Holstein and Lauenburg turned against the crown of Denmark, Every able-bodied 
man, therefore, became liable to military service in the war in Frederica. 

It was during this period of unrest in Denmark that the teachings of 
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were first introduced in 
Scandinavia, At the General Conference of the Church in Utah, held on 6 
October 18U9, Apostle Erastus Snow and Elder Peter 0. Hansen were called to 
open the Scandinavian Mission, They arrived in Copenhagen the following 
year, 18^0; and, with other missionaries, made converts in Denmark, Sweden, 
and Norway, Their acceptance of the gospel was not without hardship, however, 
for they were ostracized by friends, relatives, and civil and religious 
authorities for having renounced the State religion and accepting Mormonismo 
Although national peace was restored for a while, persecution against members 
of the Church continued. They were subjected to all manner of unchristian 
treatment that oppression, tyranny, and religious intolerance could conceive. 

At this time the counsel of Brigham Young for all members of the Church 
to gather in Zion, to be with the main body of Saints in Utah, was a welcome 
harbinger of peace and opportunity. The spirit of emigrating to America 
therefore became universal in all branches of the Church in Scandinavia, 
Those with means almost immediately came to Zion; and many of the poor, with 
the assistance from the wealthier brethren, were also able to emigrate. The 
Perpetual Emigration F\ind likewise enabled thousands to transport themselves 
to the Rocky Mountains, 

The momentvim for emigration increased with the continued threat of war. 
After the King of Denmark died in I863, Prussia and Austria backed the 
duchies again to plunge Denmark in war, Denmark's defeat resulted in the 
loss of one-third of her territory. At one time all of North Jutland was in 
the hands of the enemies and heavy war taxes were exacted of the residents. 
Living conditions were all the more trying because there was a scarcity of 
jobs, and wages were low. These discomforts, coupled with religious persecu- 
tion, thus led to a marked growth in emigration, particularly from Denmark, 
Between I86I and I866 over 6,000 Scandinavians sailed over the sea and crossed 
the continent to Utah, 

These humble Scandinavian emigrants who dared venture into the strange. 
New World, made an important contribution to pioneering in the West, In 


spite of the language barrier in an English-speaking country and the diffi- 
culties encountered in appeasing Indians and hostile gentiles, these emigrants 
left a creditable mark on history. Coming from the rigorous northern coun- 
tries, they were well suited for the struggles incident to subduing the desert 
land, where the winters were severe and long and their sustenance could be 
assured only through irrigation and painstaking cultivation of their farms. 
Although many of their first homes were little more than dugouts, they were 
soon surrounded by well-cultivated gardens; and, in due time, better homes 
were constructed, including warm shelters for their stock or for their 

Besides farmers and stockraisers, the Scandinavian emigrants included 
skilled mechanics, such as carpenters and cabinetmakers, blacksmiths, shoe- 
makers, along with tailors, millers, tanners, statesmen, educators, artists, 
musicians, theologians, et al. Among the women were talented weavers, dress- 
makers, milliners, and homemakers who could transform the crude raw materials 
of their new habitat into handsome apparel and useful commodities. These men 
and women had a great influence on the cultural, social, and spiritual life- 
of Utah and the West. They helped to build the industries, the schools, 
churches, and temples of the pioneers. 

By tackling their undertakings with faith, courage, fortitude, and a '■ 
determination to succeed, these sturdy emigrants evidenced the outstanding '•■■■■ 
attributes of their Nordic forebears. Today, we likewise, as SONS OF THE--''' 
VIKINGS, would do well in emulating their worthy characteristics. For, ag-'--- 
Macaulay said: 

A people that take no pride in the noble achievements of 
remote ancestors will never achieve anything worthy to be 
remembered with pride by remote generations. 

The biographies of the pioneers included in this work escaped the atter^- 
tion of previous compilers of histories of the pioneers of Utah and the West. 
It is therefore with a great deal of satisfaction and pride that their ac-MT 
counts are presented here, partly to regain the prestige they deserved as , ; 
true pioneers of the era. Gratitude is expressed to those individuals who 
provided information or short life sketches of the subjects included. Spe- . 
cial credit is due Jacob Christensen (l8$l) whose family records formed th%f, 
nucleus for extensive research in the original Danish parish records on ,,3^-,' 
microfilm in the Utah Genealogical Society of Salt Lake City, The authors^-..; 
sojourn in Scandinavia likewise provided a love, interest, and background 
for study of these people. 

The book commences with the generation of emigrants who came to America, 
Their ancestors are cross-referenced and given in later chapters. Because 
Jens Christensen (I8OI) and Margrete Jacobsen (l825) were the parents of the 
greatest number of descendants recorded in the book, their lives and those 
of their children are treated in the forepart.

1 JENS CHRISTENSEN, son of Christen Jensen (1766) and Anne Rasraussen 
(I776T, b h Mar I8OI, chr 5 Mar I8OI, Donated, Albaek, Hjor, Den, d 1 Jan I888, 
Deseret, Millard, Utah; md 12 Nov l8Ii3, Tolne, Hjor, Den, 2 MARGRETE or 
MARGRETHE JACOBSEN, b 27 Jan l825, Bratten, Elling, Hjor, Den,^ d I879, in Den, 
dau of Jacob Mogensen (I76O) and Maren Christensen (11^ k) - See p 3 for pictures 
of Jens and Margrete; pp I8I and 199 for charts showing their pedigrees. 

At the age of 1|2, Jens Christensen married Margrete Jacobsen, a maiden of 
18 years. Their marriage record in Tolne-Elling parish states he was of Don- 
sted and she of Bratten, in agreement with their birth records. Their first 
two children were likewise recorded in Tolne, During l85l and 1853 they were 
living in Hormested parish, where their next two children were born and chris- 
tenedo By I86I they had returned to Tolne, where the last three children were 
bonio All of their children were recorded under the surname of JENSEN, in line 
with the patronymic system prevailing in Denmark at that time, 

Denmark provided few opportunities for individuals bom poor to accumiilate 
a fortune, or even to live comfortably. The Christensen family was no excep- 
tion; they had little in the way of worldly goods, and the children had to help 
earn their living from the time they were quite young. Sometimes they knew the 
pangs of hunger, in this land ravaged and defeated in war, and taxed to the ut- 
most by hostile armies occupying the land. 

It was three years after Apostle Erastus Snow and four other missionaries 
had introduced the principles of Mormonism in Denmark that the family of Jens 
Christensen joined the LDS Church, His wife, Margrete, set the pattern by be- 
ing baptized on Ik Oct 18$3» Two weeks later, on 30 Oct 1853^ Jens Christensen 
was baptized. An Elder H, B. Hansen, from Fountain Green, Utah, was responsi- 
ble for their conversion. 

As did the other early members of the LDS Church in Denmark, the Chris- 
tensen family experienced religious intolerance , This persecution in nearly 
all parts of the coiintry, coupled with the fear and depression of war, in- 
creased their desire to join the body of saints in Zion. For years they cher- 
ished the idea of emigrating to the New World, but they did not have the means 
for the whole family to leave the country. Finally, by living frugally and 
all working together, the family in 1872 arranged for their son Jacob to emi- 
grate to America alone. He was then 21 and on the verge of being drafted into 
the King's army, 

Jacob Christensen arrived in Salt Lake City in July 1872, and shortly 
thereafter settled in Pleasant Grove 5, Utah. Here he hired out to farmers in

the community and saved all the money he earned to help bring his family to 
Utah. They cajne to America a few at a time. The year after Jacob arrived, 
in 1873 his older brother Christian and two sisters, Mary Anna and Carrie, 
came. In l87$ his sister Christena came to America with the Dahl family. 

Sincerely wishing her 77-year-old husband could join the family in Amer- 
ica, the self-effacing mother, Margrete Jacobsen, in I878 sacrificed her home 
and the remainder of the family's possessions to cover the costs of his trans- 
portation. She went to work in the home of a neighbor, with the hopes of join- 
ing her fajnily later. 

On the 2U June I878, Jens Christensen joined a company of UIl6 emigrating 
saints and 7 missionaries returning to the United States. His route took him 
by the boat "Cameo" from Copenhagen, across the North Sea to Hull, England, 
then by rail to Liverpool. There 70 English saints joined the company, and on 
29 June 1878 they boarded the "Nevada," a steamer owned by the Guion line. 
They arrived in New York City on 10 July and continued the journey by train 
under charge of Capt John Cook. They arrived in Salt Lake City on I8 July, 

The ship list of the "Nevada" indicates that two young girls accompanied 
Jens Christensen on the journey from the Old World. They were recorded as 
Maren M. Thompson, aged 11, and Anna Marie Thompson, aged U 3A, The Maren M. 
was probably his daughter Maren Margaret, erroneously listed with the surname 
of Thompson along with the second girl, who was his granddaughter. 

It was a joyous reunion for father and children in Utah. Jens lived with 
them in the vicinity of Pleasant Grove, where other Scandinavian friends were 
located and they were active in Church work. 

The records of Pleasant Grove Ward indicate that Jens' daughter Maren 
Margaret was baptized the following month, on 2k Aug I878. The ordinance was 
performed by the family' s good friend, Andrew Jenson, who later became the 
Church Historian, Also on 2U Aug I878 Jens was re-baptized by Andrew Jenson,-' 
Re-baptism was in line with the movement common at the time when those with 
sincere religious convictions felt impelled to strive for absolute righteous- 
ness. Two months later, on 29 Nov I878, Jens took out his endowments in the 
Endowment House. 

Sadness befell the family the following year, l879, when they received 
word that the mother, Margrete Jacobsen, had died. She was only 5U years old. 
Thus, before the family had the opportunity to send for her, she had passed 
away and was buried in Denmark, 

In 1879 when Jacob moved to Deseret, Millard Co, his father Jens moved 
with him, and is shown there in the I88O census. Living nearby at that time

were Jens' son'christian and family, and daughter Mary Anna Eliason and family, 
with whom his youngest daughter Maren Margaret lived, A few years later Jens' 
daughter Christena Keller and family likewise moved from Pleasant Grove and 
lived close by. A large group of Danes settled in the community and neighbor- 
ing towns. 

The Pahvant Valley offered great hopes for the settlers at that time. 
There were many small lakes along the Sevier River and miles of lowlands for 
pasture. Jens lived to see the progress the families made, from their first 
crude dugout homes with willow and dirt-covered roofs, to the more commodious 
adobe houses. He witnessed the disastrous floods of the Sevier that washed 
away their properties and destroyed crops, the sturdier dams that were built to 
constrain the river, the construction of canals, and the organization of irri- 
gation companies. He realized the pride of the settlers as they hauled wood 
from the eastern hills to burn bricks in kilns for the erection of a large 
brick church that was built in 188? on the north side of the river. 

Western America was a world of hard facts, but it was still a promised 
land. Jens had passed through lean years and realized there yet would be no 
laying down of the burden of poverty; but comfort and opportunities would be 
supplied, at least for his children and posterity. 

It was in Deseret that he received his patriarchal blessing on 26 Dec 
1880 from Patriarch John L, Smith. As evidence of his desire to fit in the 
American way of life, his blessing indicates he had shed the Scandinavian 
name of Jens for the Anglicized version of "James." Some of the thoughts ex- 
pressed in this blessing are given for the interest of his descendants. He 
was of the lineage of Joseph. Because he embraced the gospel in his old age, 
his days and years would be multiplied and lengthened. He would commence 
labors for his living and dead kindred, which work would be continued by his 
children until all would be redeemed back to the days when the gospel was upon 
the earth and not a link in the chain would be broken. In fulfillment of this 
blessing, Jens Christensen lived to the advanced age of 8?, and he witnessed 
the commencement of the gathering of records of his people, living and dead. 

Jens died in Deseret on 1 Jan I888 and was buried in the Deseret Cemetery 
by the side of his son Christian, who had passed away in 1882. The Christensen 
burial lot was fenced in, at one time. It now has neither fence nor marker, 
and is recognizable only through its proximity to the Keller and Eliason lots.

Christian, affectionately called "Chris," emigrated to America in company 
with his sisters Mary Anna and Carrie Christensen, On 2 July l873 they 
boarded the steamship "Wisconsin" at Liverpool. After reaching New York City, 
they traveled by train across the continent to Utah, arriving in Salt Lake 
City on 2k July 18714,'^ From there they traveled south to Pleasant Grove, 
wh3re Chris' brother Jacob had settled the year before. 

Chris did not wait long in America to exercise his free agency in acquir- 
ing property. In Denmark much of the land passed from father to son, and no 
one else was permitted to buy it except another family of nobility. Thus the 
peasant class could not improve their living conditions because they had to 
share-crop and pay high rentals to the nobility. But now in America, Chris 
sensed his great freedom from such a barrier to his acquiring property. On 
2 Mar I87U, within a few months after his arrival, he purchased 3/U of an acre 
of land, located southeast of the Pleasant Grove Cemetery. 5 

The following year, and now 30 years old, Chris married Maria Nielsen, 
She had been baptized a member of the LDS Church in Denmark in 1862, at the 
age of 10, at the time her parents also joined the Church. 6 Maria came to 
Utah alone at the age of I8, She and Chris were married and sealed in the 
Endoxjment House, 6 Dec l875, by Daniel H. Wells, ' Her mother and her younger

brother later emigrated from Denmark and stayed with them for a while in 
Pleasant Grove. 

In 1878, Chris' brother Jacob and brother-in-law, Marten Svend Eliason 
(who had married his sister Mary Anna), went to the Pahvant Valley to work. 
They verified the rumors and ads in various periodicals that there were thous- 
ands of acres of good land and plenty of water for irrigation, and they took 
up claims. In the spring of 1879, Chris decided also to try homesteading in 
Millard Co. He made plans to join his friend, Niels "N.CoS." Petersen, when 
the latter arranged to move his family there, Chris did not wish; at this 
time, to uproot his wife and the two children born to them in Pleasant Grove. 
His son Jens C. (named after Chris' father) was yet but 6 months oldo 

Chris offered his mule to team up with the Petersens' horse in pulling 
their covered wagon. -^ The mule, a one-eyed creature, had come to Utah in 1857 
with Johnston's Army. One of the soldiers at Camp Floyd, who had purchased 
it from the Government and remained in Utah after disbandonment of the Camp, 
sold it to Chris. It was a "kicker" when nervous, but Chris petted it and 
handled it carefully. 

Chris helped the Petersens pack their possessions in the wagon, tie their 
family cow onto the back, and start out on the long journey to Millard Co. 
After more than a week of hard travel, they arrived Deseret. N.C.S. and Chris 
chose claims beside each other, 2 miles out from town on the north side of the 
river . '^ 

In order to earn some cash, Chris joined his brother Jacob in working for 
the Utah Central Railroad, which was extending a track from Salt Lake City to 
Milford. In his spare time, he prepared a dugout on his claim for the time 
when his family could join him. They came toward fall, together with the 
families of Jacob and Marten Svend. Chris' 78-year-old father, Jens, also 
moved to Millard Co with them. 

One of the greatest misfortunes in the life of Chris and Maria occurred 
the following spring. Their 1 1/2 year-old son contracted spinal meningitis 
or polio and died of the paralysis in March. The I88O census therefore does 
not enumerate this child but gives enlightenment as to the rest of the family.

As indicated above, Chris was engaged in herding stock at that time. 

In his spare moments, Chris grubbed greasewood from his property. He 
hauled rock from the Black Rock formationj 6 miles away, to make a foundation 
for a house. He took soil from his claim, wet it, and molded it into adobe 
bricks, which he laid out to dry in the hot summer sun. With the help of

Jacob, Marten Svend, and his neighbor N.C.S., he erected a wanii, one-roomed, 
adobe house. The roof was constructed of willows laid crosswise on large roof 
logs and covered with mudo The mud was worked into the branches and smoothed 
off on top. For the wooden floor and for doors, Chris hauled unplaned lumber 
from the sawmills in a canyon near Fillmore. Adjoining the home he built a 
lean-to with a dirt floor to shelter his mule. With these accommodations, 
Chris and Maria were as well situated as most of the other pioneers in the 
community; they had a house with a wooden floor. 

Maria, who Anglicized her name to "Marie," found work in some of the 
homes of Provo, Her father had also emigrated from Denmark and found work in 
his field of cabinetmaking in Provo. It was therefore convenient for Marie to 
stay with her parents and for her mother to care for her children while she 

She was working in Provo in November 1882 when bad luck befell Chris in 
Deseret, He apparently approached his mule from her blind side, she did not 
hear him coming, and kicked him in the stomach with her two hind feet. He lay 
in the straw, helpless, for hours. When his brother Jacob came to see him, 
Chris was so weak he could hardly explain what happened. Jacob took him to 
his home and made him as comfortable as possible. He lingered for 3 days be- 
fore dying, at the age of 38 years, Jacob took care of the funeral arrange- 
ments, and Chris' body was taken to the Deseret Cemetery to be buried by the 
side of his son. 

His widow continued working in Provo. Here she subsequently met a suc- 
cessful painter and decorator, Carl Andersen, and they were married 5 May I88U, 
They later moved to Mt Pleasant, Utah, where a sister of Carl Andersen lived, 
and where Marie gave birth to another daughter, Helen M. Andersen. Sometime 
after Carl Andersen died in 1916, Marie moved to Salt Lake City, where her 
married daughters, Marie Wall and Elizabeth Coffin, were living. Marie Nielsen 
lived to the mature age of 90 years, dying in 19U3 in Santa Monica, Calif, 
where at the time she was living with her daughter Helen.

quently moved to Provo and Mt Pleasant. Here Marie attended the Wasatch 
Academy, later taught school, and met her future husband, Oscar was cashier 
of the Mt Pleasant Commercial & Savings Bank, in whose employ he remained for 
22 years. In 1928, Oscar, Marie and children moved to Salt Lake City, where 
he worked in the auditing and filing department of the Utah State Department 
of Welfare. They were members of the Wasatch Presbyterian Church of Salt Lake 
City. On 12 June 19^1 they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.

Hans Christian Hansen & Ane Jacobsen. 

Jacob was christened in the Lutheran Church under the surname of Jensen =1 
This was two years before his parents embraced Monaonism in the year 1853 o 
When he was eight years old, he was baptized by Jens Mortensen, and confirmed 
a member of the LDS Church in Tolne, Hjor, Den. He was called on a church 
mission in Denmark at the age of l8, and served from Nov I869 to May I87I, 
without purse or script, as was the custom for missionaries at that time. 

The spirit of gathering to Zion with the body of members who had settled 
in the Rocky Mountains directed many converts to emigrate to the United States. 
This religious fervor and a desire to escape draft into the King's Army were 
incentives for Jacob to leave his family and emigrate alone to Utah at the age 
of 21 years. His name appears among the list of emigrants who left Denmark on 
21 June 1872. Andrew Jenson gave the following account of their journeys 

A large company of emigrating Saints (397 souls) sailed from Copen- 
hagen, on the fine steamship "Otto," J\ine 21, 1872, in charge of Elder 
Eric Peterson, Elders Anthon H. Lund, Foul Poulsen, Soren Christiansen 
and Jacob H. Jensen, returning home from their missions ^ went along with 
this company, which, after a successful voyage across the North Sea, ar- 
rived in England and proceeded by railway to Liverpool j, arriving there 
June 25th, The Scandinavians, together with 28 British and 22 Dutch 
Saints, immediately embarked on the ocean steamer "Nevada," and sailed 
from Liverpool June 26th, under the direction of Elder Eric Peterson, 
On the 10th of July they arrived safely in New York, and the following 
day continued their journey westward by railway. 3 

The emigrants had to stay in Chicago a few hours and transfer their luggage 
to another train. Then, because there were not enough cars to transport them 
West, some of them had to ride in freight cars. They were also rationed on 
their bread supply because a baker in Omaha, who had been sent an order by

telegram, failed to provide a sufficient quantity. At 11:00 p.m. on 1? July 
1872, the company arrived in Salt Lake City, where Scandinavian friends had 
arranged entertainment for their benefit.-^ 

It is family tradition that Jacob Christensen was short of funds when he 
arrived in New York City, and he worked for the railroad corripany to finance 
his transportation to Utah. 

After arriving in Utah, Jacob settled in Pleasant Grove, where he helped 
the farmers of the community. He spent some time in the employ of Marten 
Svend Eliason, whom he told about his family in Denmark and aroused a love 
match for his sister Mary Anna. 

With some of the money he earned he purchased 3 acres of property north- 
east of the Pleasant Grove Cemetery .^ He also saved all the money he could 
spare to help defray the expenses of bringing his brother and sisters to 
America. They came, a few at a time. 

The first year after Jacob came to Utah, in 1373 j his brother Christian, 
and his sisters Mary Anna and Carrie crossed the Atlantic. Shortly after their 
arrival, in Sep 1873^ his sister Mary Anna married Marten Svend Eliason. Here 
also in Pleasant Grove, Jacob married Annie Catherine Hansen, the daughter of 
the neighbor from whom he purchased some of his property. His brother Chris- 
tian married Maria Nielsen, his sister Carrie married John Nelson, and his sis- 
ter Christena (who emigrated in l875) married Samuel Webster Keller. In I878 
their father, Jens Christensen, emigrated with their sister Margaret; and thus 
all the family, with the exception of the mother, had come to Zion. She 
planned to join the family in the New World when sufficient funds were available 
for her transportation, but she died in Denmark in l879 before the opportunity 
presented itself. 

In 1875 a successful dam was constmcted on the Sevier River, near Deseret, 
Millard Co, Utah, There were reports of the desirability of the land and an 
influx of settlers to the region. In I878 Jacob Christensen and Marten Svend 
Eliason found work there and took up adjoining homesteads close to the Sevier 
River,, three-fourths of a mile straight west of the present Deseret Ward Chapel 
site. They built dugouts for homes, and in 1879 sent for their families, Jacob 
then having a two-year-old child, Annie Maria. Unfortunately, their homes be- 
came flooded by high water, and they subsequently built themselves adobe homes 
on higher ground. 

At the time of the I88O census of Deseret, Jacob was vjorking for the rail- 
road that was under construction between Milford and Salt Lake City. Nearby 
were the families of Marten Svend Eliason and his brother. Christian. Jacob's 
father had also moved with him to Deseret, and there continued to live with him 
until his death in I888, at the age of 87. 

Six more children were born to Jacob and Annie Catherine in Deseret. One 
son, Jacob Hans, passed away at the age of 11 during a scarlet fever epidemic; 
and another son. Christian Heber, died at the age of 2. Both were buried in 
the Deseret Cemetery,

2Two acres in the NW Cor of Block 76 from James M. Ballinger, filed 13 
Sept 1873, and one acre. Lot 6 in Block 76 from Hans Peter Hansen, filed 13 
Mar I87U (Utah Co Deeds, Vol C, p 682, and Vol H, p 1). 


After completion of the Utah Central Railroad, Jacob started working in 
some of the mines. The $2 daily pay was ready cash and seemed to accumulate 
Lster than the money forthcoming from farming. However, Jacob injured one of 
his legs in a mining mishap and was laid up for a period of time. He later 
felt that his leg was miraculously healed through fasting and prayer. 

One of the prize acquisitions of Jacob's family was the Montgomery Ward 
sewing machine he purchased for them. Annie Catherine let other women of 
Deseret use it, and they marveled at the quality of their sewing and the speed 
with which they accomplished it. 

In 1896, the news of Jesse Knight's discovery of gold in his "Humbug" mine 
in the Tintic District did not take long to travel the 60 miles to Deseret, and 
many left their farms to earn the higher wages which mining offered. Jacob 
was one of many who went to Eureka to mine. He moved his family there shortly 
after his son Alma was born in July 1897. 

On one occasion he went to Jesse Knight to ask for a raise. The latter, 
who believed that he was chosen of God to be steward of the fortune made 
through the discovery of precious ores and that the moneys should be used for 
the benefit of the Mormons, readily advanced Jacob's salary. 

On 18 Aug 1913, while living in Eureka, Jacob's wife Annie Catherine died. 
The following year he married Mrs, Maren Rasmussen Hansen, a recent emigrant 
from Denmark. Her husband had died 28 Mar 1912 in Odense, Denmark, and she had 
come to Utah to be with her children. 

For 19 years Jacob remained in the employ of the Knight Investment Go, He 
and his family then moved to Pleasant Grove, where he was employed as sexton of 
the city cemetery, 

Jacob was sincerely interested in genealogical work and with his sister, 
Mary Anna Eliason, performed ordinances as early as I89I in the Manti Temple, 
He later hired a researcher, J, Hoffman Bang, Landarchivist of Viborg, Denmark, 
to gather records of his people, some work dating back to I68O, Jacob went 
regularly to the temple to perform the vicarious work, and kept an excellent 
record of the progress made. Because he felt his writing in the English script 
was inadequate, he had a friend copy all his records in a Temple Book, which 
book is presently in possession of his son, Albert Franklin Christensen, of 
American Fork, 

After the death of his second wife in 1931} Jacob moved to American Fork 
to live with his daughter, Annie Maria, Here he passed quietly away on 21 Feb 
1937 and was buried in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery. 

He was ordained to the office of Seventy in I886 while living in Deseret, 
and to the office of High Priest on 3 Feb I9O6 while living in Eureka. He 
will be remembered as ein honest and upright man, for his great faith, his 
pioneering spirit, and his concern for his family. We are greatly indebted to 
his interest in family history, his gathering and preserving records for the 
reference of future generations.

The subject of this sketch was named after his grandfather, Morten Svend- 
sen, who lived on the small island of Tromoy near the southeastern coast of 
Noi*way and died in the year 1786. 

Sadness came into the Morten Eliasen household in I836 on the third day 
of yoiing Marten Svend's life when his mother passed away. It was then a 
struggle for the infant to live, because in his generation comparatively 
little was known about the proper artificial feeding of babies. The boy was 
brought through the first months of his life on a formula of thickened cow' s 
milk. In his later years, he made the remark to his children that he became 
very tired of thickened cow's milk, every meal, every day of his early life. 
His aunt, Ane Sorensen, cared for him until he was 2 1/2 years old, at which 
time his father remarried to a widow by the name of Margrethe Christensen and 
they moved from Fristrup,^ 

Because of his father's pecuniary conditions. Marten Svend began working 
when he was 6 1/2 years old. There were seven children to rear and there was 
no other income except that which his father could earn with his hands as a 
laborer. The latter had been an underprivileged orphan, left to earn his 
sustenance after Marten Svend's grandfather, a Norwegian sea captain, was 
lost at sea. 

Therefore, Marten Svend, early in life, helped to provide a livelihood 
for himself and father's family, sometimes begging for milk, and working at 
various jobs, farming, and herding sheep. He recorded in his autobiography: 

I continued to work for my "bread" every summer and until late in 
the winter, as long as I could stay with strangers. I took in this way

i^Events in the life of Marten Svend, from I833 to 1862, are recorded

much hardship and abuse and was barely provided with clothing and sub- 
sistence » During this time I was mostly in the hands of strangers, and 
the men I worked for didn't care very much for me; however, some few of 
them gave me clothing when they saw my poor circumstances. My father 
had much to do to care for seven children with a stepmother who was lame 
and couldn-t get around very well. Every winter I came home to my father 
to attend school to learn something, but it was very little. Much of the 
time I lived with a brandy-maker who was my teacher and whose name was 
Nevi, The school was in the town of Konne in Vreile County. I was out 
of school much of the time because of my father's poor circumstances. 
I and my brothers had to go around in the nearby villages and beg for 
milk for the household, but father earned enough for bread and after that 
we had improved conditions at home. Even though I was not very good in 
studies, I was confirmed by Pastor Jensen in Vreile in l850. 

Marten Svend's father died in Hogst Mark on 21 Feb l855, after two years' 
illness. Immediately after the funeral a group gathered at his home, among 
whom was a Mormon (Jens Peter Christensen) who bore his testimony. 

Although this testimony was not regarded highly by the congregation as- 
sembled at that time, it had a lasting influence upon Marten Svend, He had 
attended the Lutheran and other churches, but, as Marten Svend stated, he 
"found no life, or spirit, or power there," and "felt more like apostatizing." 
He was thus in a great state of bewilderment, as his diary recorded: 

Regarding worship of God, I went some time to the Lutheran Church 
but found no life, or spirit, or power there. Some of the time I went 
to other churches, but found no progress with them. It was all after the 
way and teachings of the world. 

In May i860 I irent to work for the Rasgelum Priest, It was light 
work and I could do almost as I pleased, but I had to care for the Priest 
at night and had to run to town to the various shops so much that all in 
all I had little free time. Regarding the worship of God, I learned very 
little from the Priest, although I went to church every day to hear what 
was said, but I found no life or power there and felt more like aposta- 

In May I86I he found employment in a mill at Hjorring and had the privi- 
lege of hearing the teachings of the LDS Church, He began to seek out the 
LDS teachings and investigate the gospel. A new light came to him, and the 
new gospel it represented relieved his conscience. As he recorded: 

Then another light came to me and I understood that the world had 
fallen into darkness and evil and I had not accepted the true teachings 
which could save me^ I began to seek out the Latter-day Saints' teach- 
ings and investigate the gospel, I became relieved of the condition I 
had been in and from then on I sought after freedom. 

I came to .iasmus Christen Knudsen, I had the privilege of hearing 
the Latter-day Saints' teachings there — I attended their meetings in 
Moelhaegen and liked what they had to say. 

In Hjorring on 12 May I86I he was baptized a member of the LDS Church by 
J. C. Co Ostenkjer and confirmed by the same. Three months later, in August, 
he was ordained a Teacher and he experienced great joy and happiness with the 
Saints o He stated in his journal: 


I had the opportunity to meet with them quite often after that and 
recei^d happiness and uplift, I received hope and a feeling of eternal 
Se Sat I never before had known. I was ordained a Teacher the 12th 
of lu^st by Tc. A. Weibye. I continued to go to all the meetings xt 
was pSsible for me to attend and I experienced joy and happiness by do - 
Zl so! I stayed with the Saints until November. All went peacefully 
and well. 

On 1 November l86l he was called to accompany Niels Londstrom on a mis- 
sion in the Harrelser Branch of Denmark. They went from house to house 
without purse or script, to bear their testirr,ony of the truthfulness of the 
gospel, as he reported: 

I went with him to the surrounding towns from house to house to bear 
testimony regarding the great Truth we had accepted. I was happy and 
joyful but felt my humbleness in testifying to so great a thing, but all 
went well in spite of much hardship. 

His diary records his missionary experiences up to 9 February 196U. This 
year was one of extreme hardship for the people of Denmark, for their peaceful 
homeland became a battle site. The war that had been threatening between 
Denmark and Prussia-Austria, over the Schlesvig-Holstein region of southern 
Denmark, broke out on February 1st. Many of the able-bodied Elders were 
called from their missions to take up arms in defense of their country. By 
May 136U the Danish forces marched in retreat through Jutland, with the vic- 
torious Prussians in hot pursuit. This caused a great deal of trouble for 
the missionaries yet laboring in that part of Denmark. In some places the 
Germans took possession of the Saints' meeting halls and prevented meetings. 
Some of the brethren were even taken as prisoners and tried as spies. The 
foreign armies that remained there exacted heavy taxes from the already hard- 
pressed inhabitants. 

These were some of the unhappy circumstances in Denmark that led Marten 
Svend to look forward to a land of freedom and opportunity. Notes in his 
journal indicate that he frequently attended a school where he could learn 
the English language. He apparently felt the "Spirit of Gathering to Zion" 
that was strong among the Saints at this time, and he studied and made 
preparations for living in an English culture in the New World. 

Vendyssel Conference records indicate that he left that congregation on 
29 April 1865 in order to emigrate to America. ■'• He joined the company of 557 
emigrating Saints who left Copenhagen for Kiel by the steamer "Aurora" on 
U May l865. From Kiel they took a train to Altona, where they were met by 
Pres Daniel H Wells and Elder George Reynolds, who had come from England to 
instruct and encourape them. They and the presiding Elders of Denmark accom- 
panied them as they traveled by steamboat on the Elbe River to the city of 
Hamburg. They were at once placed on board the double-decked ship "B. S. 
Kimball," an American vessel. On Sunday, the 7th, services were held on 
deck and Pres Wells dedicated the ship, its captain, and the passengers to 
the Lord. About noon the next day, Monday the 8th, the ship lifted anchor 
and was drawn by a smaller boat to Gluckstadt, where Pres Wells and the other 
European Elders disembarked. On Wednesday, May 10th, the ship set out upon 
the open seas. Since the captain thought a colder climate would be better 

IVendyssel Conference, Den, Book 1201; , p 9 (GS ser no 8551, pt l5). 


for the passengers' health, he routed the ship through the North Sea and north 
of Scotland, This was the first time a company of Scandinavian LDS emigrants 
was taken directly from the continent to America without a stop in England. 

One of the passengers recorded in his journal the following memorable 
incidents that occurred during the voyage: At one time a fire broke out in 
the vessel and created a period of panic among the passengers. During the 
latter part of the journey, the drinking water became so bad they had to mix 
it with vinegar in order to swallow it, and many became ill on this account. 
The boat likewise could have provided more comfort for the passengers had it 
been equipped with air pipes; the lower decks received only the air that could 
come through the stairways. But a long- to-be -remembered highlight of the voy- 
age was their meeting a ship going east from America which informed them of 
the victory of the Union Army in the Civil War; all the passengers were 
ordered on deck, and they shouted cheers for the Red, White, and Blue. 

Andrew Jenson reported that: 

With the exception of one single day's storm the weather was very 
fair and favorable during the entire voyage. The captain was kind to 
the emigrants and the sick received good treatment. Three meals of warm 
food each day were served to all. Three adults died on the sea and 
about tvjenty-five children died of measles and the scarlet fever o^ 

Jensen's account stated that on II4 June, after a month's sojourn on the 
ocean, the emigrants arrived in New York harbor. The following day they dis- 
embarked at Castle Garden, whence they proceeded by train across New York 
State via Albany and Niagara, thence to Detroit, Chicago, and Quincy, Illinois, 
where they arrived on 20 June, They ferried across the Missouri River and 
spent two nights in the woods without tents or shelter, on the Missouri side. 
Bridges had been washed out by the rain, so that the trains could not proceed 
until the 22nd, and they did not reach St Joseph until the 23rd. On the 25th 
they boarded a steamboat up the Missouri River and on the 26th arrived at 
Wyoming, Nebraska, the outfitting place for the western trek. Seven had died 
between New York and St Joseph, 

Since the Church that year had not sent any teams from the Valley to the 
Missouri River to assist the poor Saints to travel to Utah, the price of oxen 
was much higher than in past years. The cost of a wagon was $200 in green- 
backs or $100 in gold, and the price of a yoke of oxen was $150. However, 
the Elder in charge of the emigrants, arranged for assistance to be given to 
the poor Saints by having each wagon carry 1000 pounds of Eastern freight 
along with 2000 pounds of the Saints' luggage. 

For five weeks, in the excessive June and July heat, the company re- 
mained at the outfitting place, arranging for the journey across the Plains. 
On 31 July, most of the Saints left Wyoming in a company consisting of U5 
oxteams. At first the traveling was slow as the roads were bad on account 
of previous rains. 

After passing Ft Laramie on 19 Sept, the company experienced some prob- 
lems with Indians, who were particularly hostile that year and had a few 
days previously killed a number of travelers and stolen their cattle. Here,

by opening fire, but some of them were wounded by bullets and arrows and an 
emigrSlt woman from Copenhagen was taken captive and carried off by the 
Indians. They never learned of her fate. 

At Sweetwater they were met by a relief train from the Valley, consist- 
ing of UU mule teams and loaded with provisions. This assistance was used 
in relieving the sick and invalids. 

Snow had started to fall, and the company had to shovel and clear away 
snow before they could erect their tents. The time consumed at the outfitting 
place in Nebraska had delayed their trek until inclement weather had set in 
by the time they reached the high plateau regions. 

It was 8 Nov before they reached Salt Lake City, There they camped on 
Eighth Ward Square, where the City and County Building now stands. Pres 
Brigham Young came and shook hands with them, welcoming them to Zion and con- 
gratulating them on their successful arrival. "It had taken the company 190 
days to travel from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Salt Lake City, Utah, namely, 
U2 days from Copenhagen to New York, 12 days from New York to Wyoming, 36 
days preparing for the journey across the Plains, and 100 days' travel from 
Wyoming to Salt Lake City."-'- 

Marten Svend often told his children of his experiences driving an ox- 
team across the Plains after leaving Wyoming, Nebraska, and of his walking 
most of the way. The Saints at first experienced difficulties in driving the 
oxen as the animals were not used to Scandinavian orders and management, and 
they would leave the road and run away with the wagons. Fording the rivers 
was another great problem; many teamsters had to hold onto their oxen or to 
the wagons to keep from drowning. 

It is not definitely known where Marten Svend first settled in Utah 
after arriving in Salt Lake City. Tradition indicates that he went to 
Fountain Green, and he worked with his brother in Mt Pleasant. 

Sanpete and Sevier Counties were the scene of treacherous Indian upris- 
ings. Therefore, Marten Svend could not escape participation in the Black 
Hawk War that raged from 1865-186?. The Indians stole cattle from the set- 
tlers of Mt Pleasant and closeby communities, and several troops of 20-50 
men were called from time to time to join in the large campaigns against the 
marauders. Other settlers were called to serve in Mt Pleasant 's nightguard. 
Marten Svend told his children of some of his experiences as a member of the 
guard. For years his grave in the Deseret Cemetery was decorated with an 
American flag in commemoration of his services in the Black Hawk War. 

The latter part of 1867, Marten Svend was in Prove, living in Provo 2nd 
Ward, and married to Annie Marie Neilsen Christensen, also a native of 
Denmark who had settled in Provo. On 12 Jan 1868, Bishop Andrew H. Scott of 
Provo 2nd Ward signed a letter of recommendation for the transfer of their 
membership to Pleasant Grove. 

I jbid , p 186. 

2pieasant Grove, Utah, Ward Rec, p 1?$ (GS ser no 6l65, pt 28), 


The Borglum Parish registers of Hjorring, Den, show that he was chris- 
tened under the name of Morten Svend Mortensen. Likewise, the Vendyssel Con- 
ference records indicate his membership was listed under that name, and he 
was naturalized in America using that name. However, in line with a trend of 
the Scandinavian emigrants to retain the surname of their parents, and upon 
the advice of his dear friend, Bro Weibye, who had settled in Manti, Marten 
Svend assumed the surname of Eliason. His transfer of membership from Prove 
to the Pleasant Grove Ward indicates that he had already assumed this Angli- 
cized form of name by 1868. Church records also show that his children were 
all given the surname of Eliasono On the other hand, his brother, Hans 
Christian, retained the surname of Mortensen, and the latter 's children were 
blessed under the surname of Mortensen, according to early Mt Pleasant Ward 

On 12 Dec I87O, Marten Svend purchased from the City of Pleasant Grove 
2 acres of property lying straight east of the cemetery. It was situated in 
a beautiful hollow, adjacent to a large irrigation ditch (Mill Creek). Here 
he built a home of soft rock, cut from blocks of an outcrop in the adjoining 
mountains. Many of the homes yet standing in this vicinity are constructed 
of this soft rock, and they provide warm and substantial homes. In 1938, 
when his daughter,Mary Croft, visited the old homesite, she recognized the 
house, although remodeled, and several fruit trees that Marten Svend had 
planted. She reported at that time that her father and N. C. S. Peterson had 
homesteaded land side by side on Provo Bench, but the lack of v;ater forced 
them to give up the property. 

In Pleasant Grove, on I8 Apr I868, Marten Svend' s wife Annie Maria bore 
him a son, whom they named Martin Swend, Jr. From this union, in due time, 
four other children were born. 

Marten Svend and his brother Hans Christian, from Mt Pleasant, frequently 
attended the General Conference sessions together in Salt Lake City. Follow- 
ing the spring Conference of 1872 they both received their patriarchal bless- 
ings from Patriarch Charles W, Hyde. 2 

Later in 1872, Jacob Christensen, a recent immigrant from Vendyssel Con- 
ference, came to Pleasant Grove and worked for Marten Svend. They became 
very good friends, Jacob told of his family in Denmark and how he was saving 
all the money he could earn working to send for his people. The following 
year, Jacob's brother Christian, and his sisters Mary Anna and Carrie arrived 
in Pleasant Grove, They crossed the Atlantic in the boat "Wisconsin" and 
journeyed across the states by train, arriving in Salt Lake City on 2k July 

Marten Svend' s interest in Jacob's sister Mary Anna had been aroused in 
their conversations together prior to her coming to America, Two months 
after her arrival, the ties between the Eliason and Christensen families 
were bound more closely vjith the marriage of Mary Anna to Marten Svend, They 
were sealed in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City on 29 Sep 1373. Because 
of Marten Svend' s high standing in the Church, he was permitted to enter into 
this plural marriage. Mary Anna moved into a small house erected farther 
back on the property. Here three children were born to her and Marten Svend 
and their births are recorded in the Church registers of Pleasant Grove. 

lUtah Co Deeds, Vol C, p 589 (Lots $ Sc 6, Block 62, Plat A),

The United Order began in Pleasant Grove in the year I87U and lasted for 
five years. Marten Svend's and his wives' rebaptisms into this Order indi- 
cate their sincerity in wishing to live exemplary lives. Every family had 
iS own iome and garden. There were a saw and lumber mill and store run on 
a cooperative basis; and the Saints made their own brooms, candles, and 
shoes Records in the Log Cabin Pioneer Relic Home m Pleasant Grove show 
that Marten Svend contributed various articles to the cooperative enterprise, 
including horses, cows, pigs, grain, fruit, potatoes, beans, rock for a 
granary, etc. 

He was always much impressed with life under this Holy Order and the good- 
ness of the people belonging to it. They did not covet each other's property. 
Shovels, rakes, hoes, and working equipment could be left in the iieids or 
wherever one was working without the owner fearing theft. Saints were per- 
mitted to go to the granary to fill their own sacks without an overseer. 

Marven Svend' s journal indicates that he found employment elsewhere. He 
worked in Bingham Canyon, and also around Mt Pleasant, where his brother was 
located. After a successful dam had been constructed on the Sevier River 
near Deseret, much interest was aroused in the land of that region. Church 
periodicals advertised thousands of acres of good land and plenty of water. 
Marten Svend and his brothers-in-law, Jacob and Christian Christensen, went 
there to work. His journal tells of his working in Deseret as early as Oct 
1878. He, Jacob, and Christian were so impressed with Millard Co that they 
decided to move their families there as soon as they could provide living 

Before the move was made, grief entered the household on 22 July l879 
when Anna Maria (Marten Svend 's first wife) passed away. Her body was laid 
to rest in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery. She left a seven-months old child, 
Annie Matora, with the request that the baby be given for rearing to her very 
dear friend j Annie C. Andersen, first wife of Peter M, Andersen, who was 
childless. Marten Svend in later years made the remark that nothing in his 
life ever hurt him so much as giving away this child for rearing. Neverthe- 
less, he felt compelled to abide by his deceased wife's desires and her 
promise. Furthermore, the Andersens insisted on the fulfillment of Anna 
Maria's wish to give them possession of Annie Matora. 

Following the death of Anna Maria, his second wife Mary Anna moved into 
the larger home to care for the two families of children. While Marten Svend 
was working in Deseret, Mary Anna kept the families in Pleasant Grove. She 
maintained the farm, spun, sewed, and worked to provide for the children. 

In the latter part of l879> Marten Svend moved his family to Deseret, 
into a dugout home which he had made on the bank of the Sevier River, three- 
fourths of a mile straight west of the present church site. V/ithin a short 
while, a number of relatives and friends from Pleasant Grove were settled 
nearby, including the families of Jacob and Christian Christensen, Samuel 
W. Keller and his mother, John Christian Nelson, Nels Christian Soren Peter- 
son (N.C.S.), Adolph and Charles Warnick, Ike Alldredge, and others. 

Located so close to the Sevier River, the home of Marten Svend became 
flooded several times, and he repeatedly experienced great loss. He subse- 
quently, therefore, built an adobe home on higher gro\ind, one-half mile 
north of the first site (one-quarter of a mile west of the present Deseret 

^Pleasant Grove Ward rec (GS ser no 6l65, pt 28). 


He customarily left his home early of mornings, with a crust of bread in 
his pocket for his lunch, and walked to his farm to work all day. The land 
was not level, and a great deal of time and labor were required to bring it 
under cultivation. He and his sons cleared the greasewood away with grub- 
bing hoes and dug irrigation ditches by hand. 

Three more children were born to Marten Svend in Millard Co. Mary Anna 
was a good mother and continued to care for her step-children as though they 
were her own. Thus, the Eliason family was happy and prospered. Often 
Marten Svend declared, "I am proud of the country that has adopted me." He 
could speak only well of his government and of his church. He made a com- 
fortable living and a little extra; he owned two farms, one in Deseret, and 
the other near Oasis. He raised grain, alfalfa and alfalfa seed, and cattle. 

Enthusiastic and energetic by nature. Marten Svend took excellent care 
of his farms and kept his buildings and fences in good repair. He constructed 
pens for his cattle, his calves, and sheep. Some of the cattle sheds had 
strawstack roofs, and the chickens and turkeys made their nests there. It 
was a delight for the younger children and grandchildren to be boosted to the 
straw roofs to hunt for eggs. 

There was no means of refrigeration as we have in the present generation. 
But the Eliason family did not particularly need it. Marten Svend built a 
cellar under the milkhouse where water from a spring could flow around the 
pans of milk. (Evidence of the well remains to this dayo) His vegetable 
garden was situated just south of this well, where it could be watered 

In this arid region, water was a vital necessity for existence. Fre- 
quently, therefore, there were quarrels over irrigation water. N.CS. 
Peterson and Marten Svend had a misunderstanding, but they concluded that 
they were not manifesting a Christian spirit and that they should pray about 
the matter. They laid their shovels aside, knelt down together, and reached 
a peaceful settlement through prayer.'^ 

Honesty was another virtue Marten Svend taught his children by example 
as well as precept. His son, Ephraim, remembered the winter his father cared 
for a stray, crippled calf that was brought in from the range with the rest 
of the cattle. Marten Svend fed and cared for it until it was spring and 
time to return the cattle to the range. When his son suggested that they 
place the family brand upon the calf, his father replied, "No, it isn't 
ours." The calf was subsequently turned loose with the other cattle. 

The children helped in gathering fuel for the kitchen range and for use 
during the winters. Coal was not available, but there was an abundance of 
willovj trees and greasewoods, and a supply of cedar wood could be obtained 
from adjacent mountains. Usually the trip for cedar logs involved overnight 
camping and a two days' stay in the hills. 

Enough shee$> were raised to furnish wool for Mary Anna and her daughters 
to busy themselves in cleaning, carding, spinning, and knitting the wool into 
sweaters, mittens, and socks. Neighbors also brought their wool to them to 
knit into various articles of clothing. 


^As reported by his son, Ephraim Eliason. Ibid . 


Mary Anna was earnest in acquiring fluency in speaking the English lan- 
guage and used English in her contacts with her children to the extent that 
they did not master the Danish language. However, during her knitting and 
while amusing her children, she freauently counted her stitches in Danish. 

Sincerely interested in genealogical work. Marten Svend kept a "T" book 
in which he recorded data of his people, and he and Mary Anna did vicarious 
work in the Manti Temple.^ She made their temple garments out of unbleached 
muslin. Her brother, Jacob Christensen, and their niece, Anna Maria Thompson 
(who lived with and was adopted into the Eliason family'^) likewise were in- 
volved in record keeping and temple work. 

Death frequented the homes of the pioneers. There were no doctors in 
some communities to diagnose illnesses and prescribe remedies. The elderly 
women of the neighborhood were called upon to advise and do nursing; and 
Deseret was typical of such early settlements. 

The first member of the Eliason family to pass away in Deseret was little 
Anna Maria, who died in I88I at the age of one year. The next to pass away 
was Sweny, a boy about 16-17 years of age wlio was a great help to his father 
in caring for the cattle on the range. He complained of inflammation of the 
bowels; it was later thought that he must have suffered from an attack of ap- 

In I89U, Clara (a girl of 8) and James (a boy of I6) died of typhoid 
fever. Their sister Martha recalled that Clara passed away on New Years Day. 
Their brother James, too ill at the time to be disturbed with the sad news, 
was not informed of her decease. Four days later, just before he died, James 
seemed to hear his younger sister beckon him; he looked up and called, 
"Clara I" The children \indoubtedly contracted the fever after drinking water 
from the Eliason well, which had become infested with this dreaded germ from 
the cattle troughs situated on higher ground and draining into the well. 

During the severe of the winter of 1901, Marten Svend contracted pneu- 
monia. He died on 15 Jan, at the age of 6It, and was buried in the Deseret 
Cemetery. He had experienced many hardships and sorrows, but these were made 
light by his wonderful faith and vision. As a High Priest and a member of 
the High Council, he was called upon to direct the affairs of the Church in 
the community. Many remembered his fluent conversation and his well-modulated 
voice, which was raised in promulgating goodness among his fellow men and in 
bearing his fervent testimony. 

Soon after the death of Marten Svend, Mary Anna moved with her family 
into a home east of the town of Deseret, along the Oasis road. This property 
was located near the site of the Deseret Fairgrounds, 

A short while later, Mary Anna and her family moved into a 3-roomed home 
on the northeast corner of the main intersection of Deseret and on the busy 
thoroughfare that connected the railroad with the mining industries of that 
area of Utah and Nevada. From the front windows of their home the Eliasons 
could watch the freighters travel to and from the mines of Drum, Joy, Fish 
Springs, Ward, and Ely. Sometimes as many as 30 horse teams were lined up

in Deseret. Sheepherders drove their herds along this road as they moved from 
sununer to winter ranges in the south and west. Likewise, the Pahvant Indians 
came every fall on their way to gather pinenuts in the hills to the south. 

Deseret Cash Store was located directly across the street from the Elia- 
son home. Close by were other businesses that sold groceries, merchandise, 
and furniture, a livery stable, blacksmith shop, several hotels, a post 
office, a printing and newspaper establishment, etc. A short distance east 
of the Eliason home was Damrons Mercantile, which carried clothing, milli- 
nery, piece goods, drugs, groceries, coal oil, horse shoes and collars, hay, 
grain, etc., and provided other facilities such as corrals for sheep and cat- 
tle, camphouses, and campgrounds. Here the teamsters and sheepherders out- 
fitted themselves, and camped overnight or for several days. Here also the 
Indians, on their return trips from the hills x-Jith sacks of pine cones, dug 
large pits, filled them with rocks, and built fires on the rocks. When the 
stones were hot, they piled the pine cones on top, and buried them, to cook 
for a day. They traded the roasted nuts for supplies at the stores. 

The Eliason girls, Mary and Martha, found ready employment in this thriv- 
ing community. Mary worked for Josiah F, Gibbs and William A. Ray, who 
boarded the freighters, miners, and itinerants. Martha clerked in Damrons 
Mercantile for several years, both before and after she was married. 

The Eliason home was small, but its walls seemed to expand with socia- 
bility, love, and concern for others. Mary Anna, the mother, was known as 
"Grandma Eliason," for she was attentive and kind to all. At one time her 
home was the abode of the family of Amanda Croft Conk (her daughter 14ary's 
sister-in-law) so the children could attend school <, In November, while stay- 
ing with the Eliasons, Amanda bore a child and the same day became ill with 
typhoid fever. Soon Amanda's children were bedridden with the same disease, 
and Mary Anna cared for them. They were so ill they had to learn to walk 
again . 

Mary Anna had the ability of making friends, especially children. She 
saw that each had a pair of warm, hand-knitted mittens. She also invited 
them into her home to visit with her, and occasionally she delighted them 
with songs sung in Danish. She treated them with sugar and honey cookies 
from her well-stocked cookie jar. This was a large container with a handle 
on each side and a large flower painted on the front. She had known the 
feeling of hunger as a child, and she often remarked that she did not want 
"anyone to go hungry around her home." Hence she was also generous with her 
home-made bread. Rice served with cinnamon, cream, and sugar was a Christmas 
dish. Another family favorite was her suet pudding, served with nutmeg, 
sugar and milk. The children delighted in eating the hardened, outer cover- 
ing that she trimmed off before serving. 

Although she had several sons, Mary Anna felt that milking the family 
cow was a special privilege. This animal was pastured nearby. Sometimes it 
meandered across the flooded irrigation ditch and needed coaxing to return 
home for milking. Mary Anna's granddaughter, Arvilla, recalled an incident 
when she accompanied her grandmother to bring the cow home and was inveigled 
into crossing a ditch to get the animal. Her grandmother said, "See that 
dime over there?" Arvilla could not see the dime, but she was encouraged to 
take off her shoes, jump the ditch, and look for the money, A search was in 
vein, but her grandmother then added: "Well, now that you are over there, 
get the cow and I'll give you a dime when we get home," 


Mary Anna died 28 Dec 1909 at the age of $6, having survived her husband 
by 8 years. She was stricken with pneumonia, which she contracted as a re- 
sult of leaving her sick bed too soon to attend a Union Meeting. Through the 
years her charitable spirit served her well as a member and teacher in the 
Deseret Ward Relief Society. Upon her demise, the presidency of the Relief 
Society issued the following article: 

to the Memory of Sister Mary A Eliason who was born in Denmark, April 
9, 1853= She left her native country for the Gospel sake when about 
20 years of age. She was the mother of six children and 10 grandchildren. 

She departed this life December 28, 1909, at her home in Deseret, 
Utah, at the age of 56. She was a faithful member of the church until 
her death, also an active member and teacher in our Relief Society for 
many years. Was always on hand to her post of duty especially in looking 
after the sick and aged. She was also a great lover of children and was 
loved and respected by all who knew her. Was a woman of great faith and 
integrity to the Gospel, her testimony was always bright, her faith was 

Her life was worthy of emulation, for she was always active in the 
service of the Lord, Vfe esteem it a pleasant duty to testify of her 
faithfulness, as she has left a record that would be hard to surpass, 
she endeared herself to the hearts of the children as well as the older 
people. We cannot help missing those who are near and dear, it is only 
natural yet we would not call them back if we could, therefore we bow in 
submission, and try to acknowledge the hand of the Lord and not grieve 
the Holy Spirit but cherish its divine influence and go on our way try- 
ing to bear all things. We need not be forgetful of those that have 
gone. There are many beautiful things to remember that are past that 
will help us onward. The tenderness of the hours we have spent together 
can never die out. 

Our Dear Sister of whom we write has finished her mission here on 
earth and has made her calling and election sure, we believe, but it is 
only our duty to record the life and works of a woman like Sister 

She lived a beautiful and serene life and has gone to meet her loved 
ones, her noble husband to whom she gave her affections, also her chil- 
dren who have gone before , 

Resolutions: Therefore, be it resolved that we the Sisters of the 
Relief Society do sincerely sympathize with the bereaved family, and we 
mourn for one who was in every respect worthy of our love and esteem. 

Resolved, that in her death we recognize the loss of a true Saint 
and a faithful worker and express our hopes, though she has left us for 
a short time, yet it is well with her. For she has fought the good 
fight, and has kept the faith, and there is a crown of righteousness 
awaiting her in the Kingdom of God. 

She's gone, but to a rest so sweet 

To all the faithful given, 
may we earn through earthly life 
The same sweet bliss in heaven. 
May her devoted life on earth 
Of patience hope and love. 
Aid us to gain that prize of worth 
From Him who rules above. 

Resolved, that the resolutions be placed upon the record of our 
ward Relief Society and that they be published in the Womens Exponent 


and a copy be given to the bereaved family. Signed, Officers and Mem- 
bers of the Relief Society.

Salt Lake City, Utah, bur 31 Mar 1929, Wasatch Burial Park, Salt Lake City; 
md 21 Feb 1907, Tooele, Utah, AUGUSTA SOFIA P. ANDERSON, b 20 Nov 1879, 
Holmestad, Skaraborgs Lan, Sweden, dau of August Persson Anderson k Sofia 
Kristina Fihn, (Pictures, p U3.) 

Martin's mother died in the summer of 1879 when he was 11 years old. 
Shortly thereafter he moved with his father, stepmother, and family to 
Deseret, Millard Co, Utah, where yo\ing Martin was shown in the I88O census. 

Here Martin experienced the struggles of the other pioneers in this 
region. His first home in Deseret was a dugout along the Sevier River, 3/U 
of a mile west of the present chapel site. After this home was flooded 
repeatedly by high waters, he helped his father mold the adobes for a house 
located on higher ground, about l/U of a mile west of the Deseret Cemetery. 

He worked with his father and brothers in clearing off land and build- 
ing irrigation ditches for two farms, one located near Deseret and the other 
near Oasis, They raised grain and cattle, and prospered. 

Of a mature age, Martin and his brother Soren ran sheep in the vicinity 
of Ibapah, near the Deep Creek Range in Tooele Co. Martin worked for John A. 
and Hilda Anderson Ericksen,-'- of Grantsville, who ran the "Last Chance 
Ranch" near the Utah-Nevada border. Through them he met his future wife, 
Augusta .Bjiderson, niece of Mrs. Ericksen. Augusta came from Svieden in 1905 
and lived with her Aunt Hilda. It was ^vhile Augusta was at Deep Creek, help- 
ing with the cooking for the farm hands, that she met Martin. 

After the two vjere married in Tooele, in 1907, they lived in Provo. 
There Augusta made a home for her brother, John S. Anderson, vrho attended 
the Brigham Young University, while Martin continued to herd sheep in the 
Tooele area. In 1908, Augusta went to Grantsville to be \n.Vcv her Aunt Hilda 
at the time her first child, Edla, was born. The family later settled in 
Salt Lake City, where two sons were born. 

^Augusta' s Aunt, Hilda Anderson Ericksen, received outstanding recogni- 
tion in Utah for her longevity. She celebrated her 108th birthday in Nov 
1967. She had emigrated to Utah with her mother (Maria Katrina Larsen 
Anderson) and her 2 brothers in the year I866 on the ship "Kenilworth," (see 
account of "Kenilworth" on p lOli) and made the 10-week oxteam journey from 
near Omaha to Salt Lake City. During her long life, Hilda helped with the 
operation of the ranch, managed a store in Grantsville, and served as a 
dentist, physician-midwife, and missionary to the Indians. Among honors 
given to her was a ride in the 1965, 2Uth of July Parade of Salt Lake City. 
( Deseret News , 21; July 1965) 



In the year 1910, Martin and Augusta purchased property on the 3UOO 
block of South Highland Drive, which at the time was on the outskirts of the 
city and open farm land. Martin continued to herd his sheep, while Augusta 
busied herself with raising chickens and selling milk from the cow. In time, 
they built a modern brick home at 3U92 Highland Drive. 

^^fhen Soren Eliason died in 1926, Martin inherited his brother's farm in 
Declo, Idaho. It was fine farm land for raising potatoes, sugar beets, and 
grazing cattle. Martin rented out this property but continued to live in 
Salt Lake City with his family. He suffered a stroke in 1928 and lingered 
for about a year. He died on 27 March 1929 and was buried in VJasatch Burial 

Augusta's parents remained in Sweden except for two years when her father 
lived in Utah near his sister Hilda. However, Augusta kept in close contact 
with her people. Three times she and her daughter Edla made trips to Europe 
to visit them. In 1912, when Edla was h years old, she and her mother went 
to Sweden; Martin met them there and they returned together. In 1936, Edla, 
Augusta, and Lenard traveled together. Again in 19U7, Edla and Augusta 
visited relatives there. 

Augusta, now an octogenarian, remains active and keeps the home and 
gardens in good order. She and Edla reside in the family home at 3U92 
Highland Drive, Salt Lake City. Chn of Martin and Augusta, 3:

Tora was bom in a soft-rock, block home her father built on the 2 acres 
he purchased in Pleasant Grove, It was located a few blocks straight east of 
the city cemetery, near Mill Creek, She was the youngest and the only girl of 
5 children born to her mother » 

A close neighbor in Pleasant Grove was Peter M. Andersen, who had two 
wives, Annie C, and Christine, His first wife was desirous of having children 
as well as his second wife, but the former had never been blessed vjith any. 
When Tora's mother realized that she would not live long, she promised Annie 
C. Andersen that she might take Tora to rear, Tora's mother died when she 
was 7 months old and the baby was taken into the Andersen home. Her own 
father. Marten Svend Eliason, was disappointed in the arrangement and re- 
iterated throughout the remainder of his life that nothing hurt him so much 
as giving away his own child. Nevertheless, Tora received loving care from 
the Andersens,

Tora's own father moved to Deseret in I879, but he visited her whenever 
he passed through Pleasant Grove or at General Conference time. Likewise, 
her brothers, Martin Jr. and Soren, remained close to her in spirit. Martin 
Jr. financed her education at the Brigham Young Academy. 

Robert Blackhurst and Tora were married in Salt Lake City in I903, The 
first letter they received after their marriage was a call for Robert to go 
on an LDS Church mission. Tora encouraged him to accept the call, and he 
left for service in Rennselaer County, New York. While he was gone^ she 
worked in Pleasant Grove and raised poultry to help finance his mission and 
to pay for her own transportation to meet him in New York at the close of 
his mission. 


After Robert's return, he farmed near Pleasant Grove. In I916, after 
his health failed, he moved to Los Angeles for a rest. One year was all the 


time he felt he could spare, and he returned with his family to Utah. In 
1918, he moved to Salt Lake City and worked as a storekeeper for the Denver 
& Rio Grande Railroad. He died in 193U of a heart ailment. 

Tora was likewise active in church assignments. For many years she was 
a Visiting Teacher in Relief Socie^ty. She became close friends of Belle 
Spafford and served as her Secretary when she was a Counselor in the Belve- 
dere Ward Relief Society of Salt Lake City. Tora will be remembered for her 
fine personality and sense of humor and charitable disposition. Chn of Tora

JACOB CROFT, son of George Croft & Letitia Maria Davies, b 27 Jan 1873, 
Fillmore, Utahj d I6 Apr 1938, Provo^ Utah, bur Deseret Cem, Deseret, Utah; 
md lU July 1896, Deseret, 28 MARY ELIASON, b 9 July I87I4, Pleasant Grove, Utah, 
d h May 1952, Salt Lake City, Utah, bur Deseret Cem, dau of Marten Svend 
Eliason & Mary Anna Chrlstenseno 

Mary Eliason was bom in a small rock home erected in the rear of the 
property located at U05 North 500 East, Pleasant Grove. The Eliason property 
was east of the Pleasant Grove Cemetery, bordering the Mill Creek irrigation 
ditcho Years later, when she visited the horaesite with her children, she re- 
called her playing in the orchard and pointed out some of the fruit trees her 
father had planted. 

When Mary was 5 years old, her father and family moved to Millard County. 
Several inter-related families and close friends moved from Pleasant Grove to 
Deseret about the same time and settled near each other o 

She had 3 brothers older than herself <, They were a great help to their 
father in clearing the land and bringing it \inder cultivation, building a com- 
fortable home, and herding the cattle and sheep o She also had 3 brothers 
younger than herself, who, in turn, also helped with the outside chores <> The 
interests of Mary, as the eldest daughter, and her 2 younger sisters therefore 
were oriented toward the art of homemaking. They were greatly needed in the 
home to help their mother make clothing and perform the culinery and household 
tasks for the large family. 

In this pioneer community, Mary learned how to make things from "scratch." 
She helped prepare the family's supply of candles and soap. She cleaned, 
carded, spun, and wove her own wool into cloth for wearing apparel. The mit- 
tens, socks, stockings and scarves she made were in ready demand. Crocheting, 
tatting, quilting, rug making, and creating fancy articles provided a whole- 
some pastime and also added beauty to their home. 

Mary likewise learned to cook well. She loved to make fancy food dishes, 
bread, and pastries for her brothersj, and the hungry boys were not shy in ex- 
pressing their delight. Her excellence in these homemaking arts made it easy 
for her to find employment in some of the fine homes and hotels of Deseret, 
Located near the railroad and the highway to Nevada and the mining camps, 
Deseret became a "boom" town, crowded with freight teams, miners, cattlemen, 
and sheep people who camped or boarded in the town, Mary worked in the hotel 
of Josiah Gibbs, who also ran and edited the community newspaper. She also 
worked in the home of William A. Ray, who owned a store, took in boarders, 
and ran the Deseret Post Office, 

At the age of 22, Mary married Jacob Croft, whose father and grandfather 
were some of the first settlers of Deseret in 1859 • The young couple moved 

^Evan M, Croft & Grace Hildy Croft, The Quest for Peace (Provo, Utah: 
196U), pp 38-53, 78, 107, 





into a one-roomed frame house located on the Croft farm southwest of Deseret. 
Sey later moved this house into town,, 2 blocks southwest of the business dis- 
trict, and in time added additional rooms. 

Jacob was generally occupied in agricultural pursuits, horse and cattle 
raising, and growing hay and alfalfa seed. He also worked m his grand- 
father's mills in Fillmore and Scipio, and his grandfather's orchards in _ 
Scipioo Freighting was also a profitable business; he hauled ore for the min- 
ing camps nearby, and he hauled dirt and gravel to help construct dams for the 
Deseret Irrigation Co and build the road from Hinckley to KLy and the Drum 
Mountains . 

During World War I, 1917-1918, when the Influenza epidemic was raging and 
many people were dying of pneumonia, Mary went into the homes in the community 
to help care for the sicko Since she and a daughter were some of the first to 
contract and recover from the disease, she realized she was immune and was 
willing to help those who were so desperately in need of care and grateful for 
her kindness. 

In 1927 the family moved to Provo, where the children could be near 
schools of higher education. Here, Jacob was employed by the City of Provo j 
and Mary, besides caring for her family, pursued many pleasurable activities. 
She took advantage of classes provided for adult students, attended assemblies, 
concerts, and programs. She was eager to nurse the sick and those in need of 
help. During World War II she enrolled in First Aid classes, and was known to 
have even delivered babies in emergencies. These attributes made her a willing 
worker in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and in Relief Society, in which 
organization she served as Visiting Teacher and Work Director. Because of her 
interest in civic affairs, she often was judge at the elections and sometimes 
her home was the polling place. 

She was economical, a good manager of the family budget--known for her 
ability to prepare the best meals for the least amount of money and in the 
shortest time. She had a directing hand in planting and managing a large 
vegetable garden, and hoed the weeds and irrigated it if the men were too 
busy. She was very enterprising; and to augment the family income during 
the depression years, at times she ran a boarding house for B.Y.U. students. 
The children's friends were welcome to join in the goodness and hospitality 
of her table. Her home and those of her children were made beautiful and 
artistic with her needle, cer&mic, and art work, now considered cherished 
heirlooms. These were of interest to her many friends, who loved to visit 
her. Dainty and petite in stature, she loved to dress in the height of 
fashion, and made attractive clothes for her children to wear. With her 
lofty ideals, concern for others, and unremitting industry, she set a wonder- 
ful pattern for her loved ones to follow, Chn, b in Deseret, lOs

d 20 June 1959, Deseret, Utah, bur Deseret Cem, dau of Marten Svend Eliason 
& Mary Anna Christensen. 

Martha was four years old when her parents moved from Pleasant Grove to 
Deseret, and she knew well the challenges and vicissitudes of pioneer life. 
From her mother, she learned the fine arts of homemaking, sewing, knitting, 
quilting, crocheting, and cooking, and won many blue ribbons in Millard Co 
Fairs for her needlework and food delicacies, especially pies and pastries. 
As a young lady, she attended the Brigham Young Academy in Prove. She also 
clerked in Damrons Mercantile Store in Deseret. Always active in church 
work, she served as president of TaMIA, teacher in Sunday School and Relief 
Society for years, and visiting teacher most of her life. She also was a 
county officer in the DUP. Like her parents, she was known for her kindly 
service to others. 

While a young man, James Mace drove six head of horses on a freight 
wagon from Fish Springs to Deseret. After marrying Martha and a short resi- 
dence in Deseret, he and she lived in Eureka a few years, where he worked in 
the mines and, on the side, they ran a small grocery store business. After 
returning to Deseret to live, James engaged in farming and taking care of his 
fine herd of Herford cattle. He knew beef j how to raise stock to make the 
best-tasting beef, when to kill it, and how to cure and cut it. ^rfhenever he 
butchered, he was generous to his neighbors and children. He enjoyed singing 
in the ward choir; he served on the Building Committee of the Deseret Ward 
Chapel, and was beneficent in his donations of labor and money when church 
and community projects were undertaken. Other civic positions he held were 
Deputy Assessor of Millard Co and member for several years of the Fair Com- 
mittee sponsoring the annual Deseret "Days of the Old West." One of his 
admirable possessions was a philosophy wherein he had peace within himself, 
and a friendly attitude toward everyone. Chn of Martha & James, 8:

30 EPHRAIM JACOB ELIASON, son of Marten Svend Eliason & Mary Anna 
Christensen, b l6 Aug l882, Deseret, Millard, Utah, d Hi Aug, bur 18 Aug 
1957, Deseret; md 3 June 19lU, Salt Lake City, Utah LOIS HATTIE ROBISON, b 
26 Apr 188$, Fillmore, Millard, Utah, d 22 Feb, bur 26 Feb I96I, Deseret, dau 
of Franklin Alonzo Robison & Harriet Elizabeth Thorpe. 

Ephraim was born in a home his father constructed in Deseret along the 
bank of the Sevier River after the family moved from Pleasant Grove. Because 
the river repeatedly overflowed and washed out their home and surroundings, 
the family moved into an adobe house they built on higher ground, lA mile 
west of the Deseret Cemetery. 

Ephraim worked with his father and brothers on the farm, caring for the 
cattle, milking a few cows, and selling butter. They raised grain, alfalfa, 
and alfalfa seed. The property was kept in good repair, Ephraim and the boys 
helping their father fix the fences and sheds. 

Some of Ephraim' s friends as a young man were Leffel Croft, Angus 
Allred, his cousin James Christensen, Alpin Allred, Wilford, John and Parley 
Warnick, Lon Black, and Dell Bennett. They took turns furnishing wagons and 
teams to go play ball, hunt, or attend dancesj sometimes they took the young 
ladies for hay rides. 

His father died when he was a young man. The family subsequently moved 
to a home east of Deseret along the Oasis road, near the location of the old 
A- C. Nelson School, Later they moved into a 3-room home on the northeast 
corner of the main intersection of Deseret. 

In 1909 Ephraim was called on an LDS Mission in the Northwest. He had 
not been there very long when he was put in charge of the Vancouver Mission, 
which was about all the territory north of the Canadian border to Alaska. 
His mother died of pneumonia on 28 Dec 1909, and Ephraim returned to Deseret 
to attend her funeral and help arrange family affairs. Then, with encourage- 
ment and financial assistance from his home ward, he returned to the North- 
west to complete his mission, receiving an honorable release on 5 Jan 1911. 

He was determined to further his education at the Brigham Young Univer- 
sity and borrowed money to assist him. Margaret Peterson Maw, a former school 
teacher of Ephraim (daughter of N.C.S. Peterson of Deseret), took him into 
her home in Provo until he located other living quarters. 

After returning to Deseret, he happened to be summoned as a witness to 
a law suit in Fillmore. There he took a room at the Robison Hotel, where he 
met his future wife, Lois Robison, a niece of the hotel proprietors. She 
had attended the LDS Business College, the University of Utah in Salt Lake 
City, and had done ^substitute school teaching, but was prevailed upon to 
take charge of the hotel in Fillmore, where she was staying when she met 
Ephraim. They were married 3 June I91U in Salt Lake Temple . 



They moved into the Eliason home in Deseret, which they remodeled and 
refurnishedj and lived in for many years. They later built a modern home 
next door to live in« 

Ephraim raised fine crops and cattlej and devoted much time to Church 
and community service. He served as Deseret V/ard Bishop and Deseret Stake 
High Councilman^ a member of the Millard Co School Board, and secretary of 
the Deseret Irrigation Co, Lois served in the MIA, and as Social Science 
Leader and Visiting Teacher in Relief Society. 

Ephraim and Lois reared 5 children. The family v/as known for its 
"counsels" in the living room. As the children grew up, they all used the 
same bank account. If anyone seemed extravagant according to the bank state- 
ment at the end of the month, the only reminder Ephraim gave was to be "care- 
ful in the amount of ink used," and they lived in harmony without an over- 
draft. With the direction and encouragement of Ephraim and Lois, all of 
their children attended college and were prominent in school, church, and 
community activities, Chn, 5:

273 JOHN CHRISTIAN NELSON, son of Levi Christian Nielsen & Lisa Marie 
Nielsi^Lucasen, b 22 Mar l8U3, G^ttrup, Thisted Den d 27 Dec I898 Sigurd, 
Sevier, Utah; md 6 CARRIE 14ARIE CHRISTENSEN, b 3 Apr I86I, Tolne, Hjor, Den, 
d 10 July 19U9, Roberts, Jefferson, Idaho, bur lU July 19U9, Sigurd, dau of 
Jens Christensen & Margrete Jacobseno 

John was christened in the Lutheran Church in Denmark under the name of 
NIELS CHRISTIAN LEVISEN.^ His surname followed the patronymic system in Scan- 
dinavia of adding to the name of the father the suffix indicating the rela- 
tionship. In America, Niels anglacized his name by changing it to John 
Christian Nelson,^ 

Carrie's parents were converted to the LDS Church in l853 in Denmark, 
and therefore she was not christened in the Lutheran Church. However, she 
was "recorded" on the Lutheran Church parish records as KAREN MARIA JENSEN, 
"unbaptized," her name likewise following the patronymic system,-' 

Because of the poor financial condition of her family, Carrie commenced 

working for others at a young age. She worked for a family who fished for a 

living and, as a result, developed a life-long dislike for fish and the 
utensils used for cooking it. 

By all working hard and living frugally, Carrie and her father's family 
were able to save enough money to emigrate to the New World. They came a few 
at a time. At the age of 11, Carrie left her native land in company with her 
sister Mary Anna (age 20) and brother Christian (age 29). They traveled by 
boat and rail to Liverpool, England. There they boarded the ship "Wisconsin,'* 
which sailed from Liverpool on 2 July l873 and arrived in New York City l5 
July. From there they continued the journey by rail, under charge of Captain 
David 0- Calder, and arrived Salt Lake City on 2U July 1873- 

•^Par rec of Gz^ttrup, Thisted, Den, show his name as Niels Christian Levi- 
sen, son of Levi Christian Nielsen & Lisa Marie Nielsdatter, and his birthdate

Family rec ?c Manti Slg rec give his birthdate as 22 Mar I8U6, and his 
mother's surname as Lokersen, a misnomer of Lucasen: her father's name was 
Niels Lucasen. See p 2U5 for further genealogy of this family, 

^The i860 census of Moroni, Utah, indicates he had assumed the name of 
John Nelson by the time he was 17 yrs of age. He is also shown as John and 
John Christian Nelson in the 1862 and I867 Draper Ward rebapt records (GS 
ser no 6262, pt 1).

From Salt Lake City^ Carrie went to Pleasant Grove to live, where her 
brother Jacob had settled the year before. Here she found employment in 
various homes. One family for whom she worked for her room and board had an 
orchard. She remembered throughout her life how tired, as a young girl, she 
became of peeling apples. To relieve the monotony of the task, she peeled 
each apple differently, end over end, diagonally, round and round, etc. The 
elderly couple she lived with were uncomfortably thrifty at mealtime. Four 
slices of bread were placed on the table, a slice and one-half apiece for 
the man and woman, and only one for Carrie. As a growing, teen-aged girl, 
she would have enjoyed more bread. 

In 1877, at the age of I6, Carrie married 3U-year-old John Nelson, who 
had come to America some 22 years previously, in 1855, with his parents and 
some of the earliest convert-emigrants from Denmark. 

On 29 Nov 1855 John's company of kkl Scandinavian saints sailed from 
Copenhagen on the steamship "Loven," in charge of Elder Canute Peterson, a 
missionary returning from Norway. They traveled to Kiel, in Holstein; thence 
by rail to Gluckstadtj from there by boat to Grimsby, England; thence by rail 
to Liverpool. There, on 12 Dec 1855 ^ they boarded the British ship "John J. 
Boyd" with some U2 British and 30 Italian saints. The ship list records 
John and his father's family as follows-. 

Levi Christian Nielsen Age 37 
Lisa Marie " 37 
Niels Christian " 13 /JohnZ 
Christian " 10 
Johanna C. " 6 

Although the company included Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, Icelanders, 
Italians, English, Irish, and Scotch emigrants, they deported themselves 
agreeably. At the sound of the trumpet, they met in prayer each morning and 
evening. During the voyage church meetings were given in the Danish^ English, 
and Italian languages. 

Halfway across the Atlantic, they met a clipper ship whose bulwarks had 
been wrecked and its masts and spars carried away. They took on board the 
captain and crew of the sinking ship. These trained men assisted the over- 
worked sailors of the "John J. Boyd" during the hurricanes and storms it sub- 
sequently encountered. 

After a difficult passage requiring 66 days, the ship safely anchored 
in New York on I6 Feb 1856, From New York the passengers traveled to Castle 
Garden, to continue their journey by train by way of Dvinkirk, Cleveland, and 
Chicago. There the company was divided into 3 groups, some to travel to 
Burlington, Iowa, some to Alton, Illinois, and the remainder to St. Louis, 
Mo. Due to the poor circumstances of the emigrants, not all were able to 
continue the journey to Utah in l856. Some remained for a year or so in the 
central states to earn the means to continue their journey to the Valley. 

It is not knoim when the Nielsen family arrived in Utah. Early Ward 
records of Moroni, Utah, show a division of land to Levi Nelson and J, C. 

^"British Mission Emig Rec," Ship List of "John J. Boyd," 1855, p 3- 


Nelson.^ At the time of the i860 census they were living in Moroni, where 
the father Levi was engaged as a shoemaker, and "John" as a farm laborer. 
The family had anglacized their surname from Nielsen to Nelson. By ld62, 
John Nelson, his brother Christian and sister Hannah Catherine were living 
in Draper, Utah. 3 It was here that Hannah met her future husband, Mel Mills 
Rogers; the two later moved into the Uth Ward of Provo, Utah. 

By 1878 John Christian was married to Carrie Christensen and was living 
on Provo Bench, where their first child, Elizabeth Ane, was bom. The fol- 
lowing year they were living in Pleasant Grove, where two more children were 
born. They were shown in the I88O census at Pleasant Grove, with John engaged 
as a laborer. Subsequent moves in Utah took them to Winter Quarters in Emery 
Co; Vermillion, Sevier Co; Holden, Millard Co; and Sigurd, Sevier Co. 

Ten children were born to Carrie and John, but only four lived to adult- 
hood. Two of their children, Rufus and Levi, died of diptheria the same day, 
11 Nov 1895. When Carrie went to the store to buy cloth to make the first 
baby a burial dress, the other child died. The 'two were buried in the same 
grave. John was very proud of his family, especially his boys, and he had 
his picture taken with them. On 22 Jan I89O he and Carrie went to the Manti 
Temple to have their children sealed to then, 

John C. Nelson worked very hard as a laborer and miner, wherever the 
family lived. He died at the age of 52 and was buried in Sigurd. For sev- 
eral years after his death, Carrie was employed as post mistress of Sigurd. 
She would ride out to meet the train, which had no definite schedule, and 
there wait in a little shack sometiiries most of the day to pick up the mail. 
It was her duty to sort the mail and bring it to SiguTd. 

Carrie was known for her fine needlework. She made a great number of 
beautiful quilts for her family and friends. These were all hand-sewn in the 
tiniest stitches. She was also meticulous in her housework; everything had 
its special place and was fiven special care. 

On her 79th birthday the Relief Society gave her a birthday party. She 
was very proud of the cake they gave her, with 79 candles on it, and the 
picture they took of her. During her last years she lived at Roberts, Idaho, 
with her married granddaughter, Carrie Nelson Hovinghoff . By attaining the 
age of 88, she outlived all her brothers and sisters. She died at her grand- 
daughter's home in 19U9 and was buried in Sigurd near her husband. She had 
been a widow for ^1 years. Chn, 10:

James' father died when he was lU years old. As the eldest of three sons, 
James realized his responsibilities in helping his mother to provide for and 
rear the family. 

In 1909, at the age of 25, he married Olive Foote; and they made their 
home in Sigurd. In January of the following year, twin sons were born to 
them. When the boys were 9 months old, James was called on an LDS Mission 
to the Northwestern States. He departed on 10 Oct 1910, filled an honorable 
mission, and was released on 23 Sep 1912. 

In 1916 James and his family moved from Sigurd to Salt Lake City. In 
1920, the family moved to Duchesne, Utah, where his brother Roy was engaged 
in dairy farming and James drove a truck for a creamery. The family later 
moved to Price, Utah, where James drove a mail truck. After returning to 
Salt Lake City and making their home at 21st South, James drove trucks for 
road construction and plumbing companies. He died in Salt Lake City of 
cancer at the age of 8I years, and his body was taken to Berkeley, Calif, 
for burial by the side of his wife. Chn, 6:

ik) BERTIE. 

Royal, called "Roy," was freckled and auburn -haired. His father died 
when he was 10 years of age, and he herded sheep to augment the family income. 
One of his employers promised a new suit of clothes to the herder who re- 
turned at the end of the season with the best count. Roy had lOOjS and won 
the suit. He loved music, and learned to play the guitar from watching a 
teacher give his brother James lessons. He played the guitar well, also the 
harmonica, accordian, and several stringed instruments, especially the violin. 


These skills made him in demand for playing at socials and square dances. 
When he was l6, he applied for a job in the gold mines at Eureka. Although 
he was too young, he let his beard grow and was given employment. He did not 
continue working in the mines for long because his friend, who was 3 years 
older, was refused a job on account of being "too young," The two then took 
a job together hauling wood from Nevada. Between the hauling jobs they 
played and sang in the inns and public houses of Reno. 

Roy later went to Idaho to work for farmers. He rented a farm near Ammon 
and put in a crop. In the spring of I908 he wrote to his sweetheart in Sigurd 
that he wanted to marry her and take her to Ammon to live. They were married 
in Salt Lake City on 1 April. 

In the early part of 1912 they returned to Utah to live. For a while 
Roy ran a water well and feed yard at Nine Mile Canyon, where freighters 
stopped on their way to Myton, Utah. Later he purchased a UO-acre allotment 
on an Indian reservation in the Uinta Basin. Shortly afterward he purchased 
a lumber mill west of Burrville, in Sevier Co, and built a house in Sigurd, 
where the family lived several years. The Uinta Basin again beckoned them 
and they returned to their UO acres, plus 80 acres of rented land. It took 
them 10 days to travel from Sigurd to Altonah. The family engaged in dairy 
farming and raising hay, and built them a new 8-room house. 

While his boys worked on the farm, Roy went to Fish Lake, Sevier Co, to 
work as a fishing guide. He spent seven summers there as guide. For a 
couple of years he and a partner rented an area at Moon Lake, in Summit Co, 
where they built a store, cabins, and dance floor, and rented boats. He and 
his son Worth acted as guides to fishermen, assuring them a catch of fish. 
Often they had to catch the fish to make good their promise. During autumn 
season, Roy frequently acted as a guide for deer hunters. Of winters, he 
trapped. He loved the out of doors. 

Later Roy sold his home in the Uinta Basin and moved to Idaho. Here 
Edith died of pneumonia in 1936. She was always well thought of, an active 
worker in PTA and Relief Society wherever she lived. After her death, Roy 
traveled over the western states, from California and Oregon to Alaska, work- 
ing at various war plants and other jobs. He remarried three times, outliv- 
ing all but his last wife. He died of a heart attack in I96I and was b\iried 
in Hermiston, Oregon. A picture of his family is on p 77. Chn, 9:

Christina, shown as Christena "Jensen" on the parish records of Tolne, 
was the 6th of 7 children born to her parents. Because they were converted 
to Mormonism in 18^2, Christina was recorded in the parish records as "unbap- 
tized" in the Lutheran Church. The -family's membership in the LDS Church 
resulted in estrangement and difficulties among their relatives and friends, 
and, unfortunately, created trying working conditions. Christina's father 
and brothers were discriminated against in employment situations, so that in 
a land where jobs were already scarce and wages inadequate, the Christensens 
were greatly oppressed. 

In line with the trend for members of the Church to emigrate to Utah to 
be with the main body of saints, the Christensen family arranged for a few 
at a time to come to America as finances permitted. Christina's eldest 
brother, Jacob, who was on the verge of draft into the King's army, emigrated 
alone in l872. The following year her brother Christian and sisters Mary Anna 
and Carrie emigrated. Christina emigrated in 1875 at the age of 12, in com- 
pany with Mr. & Mrs. Mikkel & Brigette Nielsen Dahl; she always said she 
"came with the missionaries." Her father and youngest sister Margrete came 
in 18780 Her mother died in Denmark in 1879 before she had a chance to come. 

On the 10 Sep 1875, Christina's company of emigrants left Denmark for 

Liverpool, England, whence they sailed 15 Sep on the ship "Wyoming," arriving 

in New York on 27 Sep 1875, and crossing the continent to Salt Lake City by 
rail . ^ 

She settled in Pleasant Grove near her brothers and sisters, where she 
found employment in various homes. In 1879, at the age of I6, she married 
Samuel Vfebster Keller, a young man of 23 years. He crossed the Plains at 
the age of 12 with his widowed mother and younger brother and sister. They 
traveled by handcart in I869 and settled in Pleasant Grove.

After their marriage, Christina and Samuel remained in Pleasant Grove, 
where their first S children were born and where U of them died as infants. 
In 1885 they moved to Deseret, where Christina's father, brothers Jacob and 
Christian, and sisters Mary Anna and Margrete had settled 6 years before. 
Here 7 more children were born to the Kellers. 

In Millard Co, Samuel drove the mail wagon from Oasis to Fish Springs. 
The children remember sitting on the corral fence, waiting to see their father 
speed by with the mail wagon and the wild horses, their tails and mains flying 
in the wind. If he were early, he would stop for a kiss, while the ponies 
pawed the earth, eager to be on their way. If he were late, he would just 
wave as he passed, and the children would run into the house to help their 
mother prepare the meal for when he returned. ■'- 

Samuel later took up the freighting business, but he was unable to be 
home oftener than once in 3 weeks and decided to give up the job to take up a 
homestead on the Sevier River, With the help of his wife and children, he 
began to build a new home of lumber and adobes. The roof was made of poles, 
topped with willows, straw and mud. The large middle room was mostly lumber 
and had a rough-board floor, which seemed a luxury in the vicinity at that 

The house was not entirely completed when Samuel met with an accident 
that left him an invalid, lifl^ile loading poles onto a wagon, he slipped on 
the ice and broke his collar bone. Nothing was done to relieve him, as lit- 
tle was available in the way of medical help in the community at that time. 
He lived for 3 years, in poor health. His 6-months-old baby daughter l-Ialeta 
passed away of Whooping Cough the day before he died, but he was too ill to 
realize it. She iras laid on his arm and buried in the same casket with him 
in Deseret Cem. 

Widowed, Christina maintained her family with the money she earned by 
weaving carpets and rugs, washing on the washboard for neighbors, and with 
what little the older children could earn. They cooperated and assisted her 
with her many tasks, as best they could. 

In 1907 she married Chris Kyed Johnson, a widower with $ children from 
the nearby town of Oasis. They lived together only a few months until 
Christina moved back to Hinckley and obtained a divorce. 

In I92U, after her children were all married, Cliristina married a 
Southerner, William Jonas Conger. He vjas a widower employed as a Watkins 
products salesman. They moved out on what was called "South Tract," pres- 
ently Delta 3rd Ward. After her daughter Ruby married Isaac Colby and 
moved to Sigurd, Christina and William bought a little home next door to 
them and lived in Sigurd. 

Christina passed away in Sigurd in 19h2. She was taken to Deseret for 
burial beside Samuel Keller in the Deseret Cem. The following year, Mr Conger 
was killed when his car was struck by a truck near St George. 

The Keller children remember their father Samuel for the lessons he 
taught on integrity and trustworthiness. One example was the time he trav-

eled lli miles, in the dead of the winter over icy roads, to haul feed to a 
man's cattle. When asked why he bothered doing this, he replied: "I told 
the man I would do this while he was away and he knows he can trust me to do 
itj that is why he asked me. He knows I always keep a promise. "1 

Christina, too, lived an exemplary life. She reminded her children 
that "they knew right from xirrong" and to let the other youngsters follow them 
if they wanted; if not, her children were to go their ways alone. \Ihen her 
sons courted girls, they were to remember they had sisters, and they were to 
treat the girls like they wanted their sisters treated.^ Thus, Christina 
tried to rear her children to be true Christians and to be considerate of 
others. Chn of Christina & Samuel, 12:

Salt Lake City, Utah, d 20 Oct 1928, Holladay, Salt Lake, Utah, bur Pleasant 
Grove, Utah; md 1$ June 190li, Salt Lake City, U9 JULIA ETHELEND KELLER, b 
17 Nov 1886, Deseret, Utah, d 2 Apr 1962, Los Angeles, Calif, btir 6 Apr 1962, 
Pleasant Grove, dau of Samuel Webster Keller & Christina Christensen. 

Although Julia was the 6th child bom to her parents, she was only the 
2nd one to live to maturity. During her late teens she worked in the mining 
town of Mercur and corresponded with her futiire husband while he lived and 
worked in Pleasant Grove, Their marriage date was arranged by mail, when she 
was not quite l8 years old and he, 29- They made their home for a time on 
the East Bench of Provo River. About 1907 they moved to Mercur where Jim 
worked in and around the mining operation; his primary work was driving a 
team and hauling supplies. Here he suffered a heart injury that incapaci- 
tated him the balance of his life. 

Before 1912 the family moved to Union in south Salt Lake valley, and 
later to the Brinton Ward near 39th South and Highland Drive. Before 192U 
the family moved to U8th South and Wander Lane in Holladay. 

Because of Jim's inability to work strenuously, the large family strug- 
gled to maintain the necessities of life. The family was further enlarged by 
Jim's father moving in with them for many years. For a period of time Jim was 
employed by the Baldwin Radio Co in Salt Lake City, and Julia did housework in 
the homes of others. She enjoyed reasonably good health with the exception of 
foot problems; fallen arches required her binding her feet before she left 
for work in the morning. Upon arriving home she v;as grateful to be able to 
sit down and have one of her children remove her shoes and unwrap her sore 
and aching feet. 

The home into which they moved in Holladay was a small 2-room house. 
With some assistance, Julia and Jim constructed an additional 2 rooms, Jim 
died in this home in 1928, and life became even more difficult with his pass- 
ing and the ensuing depression, Julia was deeply concerned about her chil- 
dren; her discipline was one of love. She did not desire great riches for 
them, but wanted them to be successful in their undertakings and to be happy. 
She desperately wanted her younger children to complete their education and 
hoped they would go to college. 

With the approach of World War II, the 3 children still at home joined 
the Armed Forces: Lenwood and Orin joined the Navy, and LeRoy, the Air 
Force, Alfred also served during the war. Julia corresponded faithfully 
with her sons, and maintained a close and constant line of communication. 

In the summer of 19U5, the boys decided they would like their mother 
to be more comfortable in her home and, as a result, the old home was re- 
built. Upon its completion, the new house was a source of satisfaction and 
security to her, but the joy was dulled by the fact that she had no children 
to live in it with her. However, she enjoyed traveling; and because her 
children had found homes of their own in widely scattered places, she was 



able to travel extensively and spend the time she desired with each of them 
and her grandchildren. In her last years she had the blessing of being able 
to travel to many varied and interesting places m the United States m the 
company of her sister Ruby, and others. 

Her spirit of independence caused her to express a deep concern of being 
a burden to someone in her later years. This desire for independence and 
health was granted her, for she was alert both physically and mentally until 
a few months before her 76th birthday. As a result of a fall m the early 
months of 1962, she was confined to her bed only a few weeks prior to her 
death in the home of her daughter Hazel, in California. Funeral services were 
held in Salt Lake City and burial in Pleasant Grove Cera, alongside her husband, 
and their son Glen. She was sweet and gentle of nature. Although her life 
had been hard, she also found it rewarding and pleasant. Her greatest sources 
of strength were in her knowledge of the gospel and in her children. She was 
sincerely interested in genealogy and family history. Chn, 9:

50 i/nLLIAM "ALLEN" KELLER, son of Samuel Webster Keller k Christina 
Christensen, b 31 Dec I89I, Deseret, Utahj md 2k Aug 19l5, Nephi, Utah, 
LILLIAN LOVELAND, b 3 Oct l897, Honeyville, Box Elder, Utah, dau of David 
Loveland & Julia Hunsaker. 

Allen remembers many happy experiences of his early youth while his 
father was living and they worked together about the homestead, hauling poles 
from the hills for the new house, etc. He was 9 years of age when his father 
passed away, and, as the eldest boy at home, he had his share of work to do. 
It was therefore difficult for him to attend school regularly. Hovrever, the 
school teacher took a special liking to him and gave him a job herding cows. 
In between times, his teacher taught him and gave him exams so he could gradu- 
ate with his class. His teacher also taught him boxing and wrestling. Allen 
later took a preparatory course and attended the Millard Academy for 2 years. 
His older brother Perry worked away from home and sent $25 a month to help 
his mother. After Allen was I8 years old. Perry turned over this responsi- 
bility to Allen. 

When he was 23 he married Lillian Loveland, whose parents, likewise of 
early pioneer stock, had moved to Hinckley a few years previously. The two 
took up a UO-acre homestead 3 miles northwest of Hinckley. Although on high 
ground, Allen persevered in getting water on the land and proved it to be one 
of the best farms in the community. However, the Millard Co drouth and the de- 
pression forced him to give up the place and move to Charlo, Montana. There 
he leased a UO-acre farm. Since it was located within a small branch of the 
Church, the entire family became involved in activities. 

In 1937 Allen commenced having trouble with his legs. The doctor informed 
him he had Burgess disease, and advised him to remain in bed with his legs 
elevated. This was a difficult order to follow since he felt the necessity 
and obligation of providing for his 8 children. Subsequent treatment at a hot 
springs brought him relief j and he felt encouraged to go to Los Angeles, where 
his wife was working in the war effort, and take a job at the Santa Monica 
Aircraft Plant. He passed the doctor's examination and was given a job oper- 
ating a crane. In 5 weeks his foot trouble returned; he went back to the hot 
springs but was unable to overcome his problem. Both legs were amputated-- 
a great disappointment to him. He feels that if he had kept his covenants to 
the Lord of giving selfless service to others, he would have been spared this 
affliction. In spite of this handicap, Allen is grateful for his many bless- 
ings, and expresses a fervent testimony and many faith-promoting stories. He 
and Lillian spend their printers in St George doing temple work, and are sin- 
cerely interested in genealogical research. They are active in community 
enterprises wherever they live, Chn, 8:

Ruby's father died when she was Ih years old. She therefore shared in 
her mother's problems of trying to earn a livelihood and rear a family. 
These trying situations helped prepare Ruby for the sorrows and difficulties 
she experienced in later life. 

Ruby married Lewis Harmon Duncan on 10 Nov 1915 in the Salt Lake Temple, 
They lived in Holden and later Meadow, Utah. Lewis was an avid reader, was 
well-informed, and always prepared to preach a gospel sermon. He had high 
ideals and wanted to rear a fine family, but his life was cut short at the age 
of 26. He died 31 Oct 1920 in Salt Lake City of typhoid fever, leaving Ruby 
with 3 young children. She therefore moved to Hinckley in 1921 to be near 
her mother and brothers. 

On 28 Oct 1921, Ruby married Gibbs Robison, twin brother of Berry, 
During World War I, he served overseas. He was a good entertainer and very 
kind to the children. Unfortunately, he x-jas electrocuted in Delta in 192U 
by a moving derrick, leaving Ruby in poor financial circumstances and with 
5 young children, including a 2 months-old baby. This was during a drouth 
and depression period in Millard Co, and Ruby worked hard to support her 
family . 

After her cousin, Victoria Nelson Colby, died in Nov 1929 and her hus- 
band, Isaac Colby, offered Ruby the love and security of his home, she was 
relieved of some of her responsibilities. She and Isaac were married for 
time in the Manti Temple, 7 >lay 1930, Her family moved to the Colby home in 
Sigurd that year, and Ruby extended her affection to Isaac's twin daughters. 
But she soon was called to bear another sorrow: after several months of ill 
health, her 12-year-old daughter Marcella died in I936 of Brights Disease. 

Although Isaac was I8 years older than Ruby, the two enjoyed a 32-year 
association, he passing away in I962, Ruby thereafter traveled extensively 
in the United States and around the world. Her sisters, Julia and Roxie, 



accompanied her in some of her travels. Her son Lazone , who had worked his 
way through college and achieved recognition in the field of radio and tele- 
vision, financed her trips, the upkeep of her home, and tried to show his 
appreciation for the efforts she exerted in his behalf and the rest of the 
family during the difficult times of their youth. Recently, Ruby had the sad 
experience of losing this son, Lazone, who passed away in Durham, No Car, at 
the height of an outstanding career. 

In June 1961;, Ruby married Clarence Frederick Moses, a very kind and 
attentive companion They spend winters in St George, doing temple work, 
and summers in Sigurd. They are loved and respected by all who know them.

The ancestors of Niels Scow were millers (identified as MtLLler or Mttller) 
and natives of Vadum parish in Aalborg (see Chap XXVII),, "Skou" meains forest, 
indicating that those of the family who assumed that name lived near a forest 
or were woodworkers » 

Ten children were born to Niels and Ellen Marie in Denmark, four of whom 
died in plagues s two of Scarlet Fever within two weeks of each other in 1858, 
and two of Cholera in 1662. Dying only two days apart, the latter two were 
buried in the same coffin o 

Niels and Ellen Marie were impressed with the messages of the Mormon 
missionaries and were baptized U Sep i860. They were members of the Aalborg 
Branch .5

Niels found jobs scarce and wages low» Like the vast majority of the 
inhabitants in war-torn and enemy^occupied Jutland, the Scows were poor 
After the family joined the LDS Church in i860, they endured even greater 
economic problems, for Niels was refused employment because of his Church 
affiliation. The older children, therefore, had to find work at an early age. 
In order to supplement the family budget, lO-year-old Cathrine and 8-year-old 
Soren (Sam) worked in a glass factory at odd hours during the day and night. 
Having concern also for the welfare of the Mormon missionaries, who at that 
time traveled without purse or script, the children begged for bread to help 
sustain them. 

The Spirit of Gathering to Zion burned within them, and in the six years 
following their conversion, the Scow family made plans to emigrate to Utah. 
In the year 1866 arrangements were made for the first time for Scandinavian 
emigrants to sail directly from Germany to New York instead of from Liverpool, 
England. In May of that year, President Brigham Young personally went to 
Hamburg to assist in making the necessary arrangements to transport the 
Scandinavian saints. 

The Scow family, then seven in number, traveled to Copenhagen to join the 
company of saints emigrating to America. They were scheduled to travel to 
Hamburg and embark on the ship "Kenilworth" for the long voyage across the 
Atlantic. The ship list shows the following entries:

During the voyage, Niels' son, Chris, found work assisting with the cooking 
of the food for the emigrants. 

This was the company of saints in which Andrew Jenson (assistant Church 
historian) and his parents emigrated to America, and we are indebted to his 
accounts of the passages 

A company of emigrating Saints (the first of the year's emigration) 
left Copenhagen by steamer "Aurora" May 17, 1866, and arrived early on 
the following day (May l8th) in Kiel, from which city the company went by 
train to Altona. From there the women and children continued in a small 
steamer to Hamburg, while the men walked to the same place. On their ar- 
rival in Hamburg, the emigrants were lodged for the night in a large emi- 
grant building, and the following day went on board the double-decked ship 
"Kenilworth" (Capt. Brown). On Tuesday, May 22nd, more emigrants (who had 
left Copenhagen the preceding day) . , . arrived in Hamburg, and on the 
25Pd the ship sailed a few miles down the river Elbe where it anchored. 
On the 2] Pres. Carl Widerborg . „ . came on board and organized the 
company. . . . The emigrants were di-vided into forty-two messes, each con-

taining from twelve to seventeen persons^, and a president appointed over 
each mess. 

The ship "Kenilworth" lifted anchor in the River Elbe at Hamburg 
May 25, 1866, and commenced its long voyage across the North Sea and At- 
lantic Ocean, with , „ » 68U souls on board: 583 from Denmark, 23 from 
Norway, 73 from Sweden and 5 from Germany. The route around the north of 
Scotland was chosen and one day the ship, driven by contrary winds out of 
its course, got so close to the west coast of Norway that its rocky cliffs 
were plainly seenc The Shetland and Orkney Islands were soon passed and 
the winds were favorable for about three weeks. After that there was con- 
tinuous headwinds and fog for five weeks, which made the voyage both long 
and dreary, Capto Brown and the ship's crew treated the passengers in a 
kind and generous manner, allowing them all the privileges that could reas- 
onably be expected. The provisions were satisfactory and the sick re- 
ceived good attention. Eleven or twelve persons died during the voyage. 
, o o The ship anchored off Staten Island and on the 17th of July the emi- 
grants were landed at Castle Garden, the weather being exceedingly hot.^ 

Because Elder Thomas Taylor, emigration agent for the Church in 1866, had 
experienced difficulty in making the necessary arrangements for transporting 
the emigrants from New York to Wyoming, Nebraska, at a reasonable price, he 
contracted with another company. This was by an entirely new route, several 
hundred miles longer, but much cheaper than the more direct route, Jenson 
stated s 

On the evening of the same day that the passengers of the "Kenilworth" 
were landed at Castle Garden, the emigrants proceeded on their journey on 
a large freight steamer to New Haven, Connecticut, where they arrived on 
the morning of July l8„ After staying there a few hours, the journey 
northward by train was begun, passing through states of Connecticut, Massa- 
chusetts, and Vermont to Montreal in Canada. Here the emigrants had to 
accept passage in some very uncomfortable and dirty freight and cattle 
cars, in which they traveled through Canada, the route of travel being 
along the north bank of the St, Lawrence River and the shores of Lake 
Ontario and Lake Erie to the St, Clair River. , , , A part of the train 
jumped the track near Port Hope on the banks of Lake Ontario, but through 
the interposition of a kind Providence no one was hurt. The emigrants 
were ferried over the St. Clair River to Port Huron in the State of Michi- 
gan, where better cars were obtained, and they wended their v;ay via 
Chicago to Quincy, Illinois, A steamer took them across the Mississippi 
River to the Missouri side, v;here they found temporary shelter from the 
burning sun in a nearby grove. While stopping there, a young boy who ven- 
tured too far Out while bathing was drowned in the river. After a very 
disagreeable ride through the state of Missouri, where the inhabitants at 
nearly every station did all they could to insult the emigrants, the 
company arrived in St. Joseph July 27. From this place they sailed two 
days on a steamboat up th6 Missouri River, On this most \inendurable 
passage up the river they suffered all kinds of insults and abuses from 
a wicked crew. Finally, the company reached Wyoming, Nebraska, . . . July 
29 J, and in the afternoon camped on the heights in and near the town. The 
U50 teams sent by the Church in 1866 to the Missouri River to assist the 
poor had already waited some time for the arrival of the emigrants in 

^Hist of Scand Mission, pp 191-192. 


Wyoming, wherefore the necessary preparations were hurriedly attended to 
in order to begin the journey across the Plains as soon as possible,^ 

The Scows crossed the Plains by oxteam in Capt Joseph S Rawlings Company, 
which left Wyoming on the Missouri River on 2 Aug 1866. The family shared 
their wagon with three other women, making a total of 10 individuals along 
with pro^sions and furniture. Consequently, most of them had to walk most of 
the way. During the trek, 9-year-old Soren (Sam) was so ill with malaria 
fever that the family despaired his life, expecting to bury him along the way. 
In fact, a grave was dug for him, and his mother wrapped him in a sheet for 
burial. However, their fasting and prayers were rewarded, for they witnessed 
a miraculous recovery. By the time they reached the "Valley, he was able to 
walk with help. 

On 30 September the company was met by members of the Church from Utah, 
who brought them baskets of fruit. Then the following day, on 1 October, they 
arrived in Salt Lake City, In three weeks, an Uncle Soren Christiansen (Ellen 
Marie's sister's husband) met them and took them to his home in Deseret, 
Millard Co, a distance of 175 miles. All winter they stayed with them^ 

However, in continuing the trade of carpenter, Niels found it necessary 
to move elsewhere. In the spring of 186? the family moved to Fillmore, where 
they remained for a short while before moving to Corn Creek, and from there to 
Kanosh. The home they built in Kanosh was traded for a pony and transportation 
for the family to Salt Lake City in the spring of 1868, 

Niels purchased a quarter section of land in Ogden, which he later sold 
for practically nothing. The Union Pacific Depot now stands in the center of 
this quarter section. 

Since this was before the completion of the transcontinental railroad, the 
settlers were needed in the freighting business. In 1868, two sons of Niels 
(James and Chris) returned to Missouri as teamsters to pick up freight and sup- 
plies. In the meantime, Niels took Sam with him and went to work for the rail- 
road which was being constructed in Wyoming. This left the mother, daughter 
Cathrine, and young Oliver all alone, with scanty provisions and too timid and 
proud to ask for assistance from the Church, They were relieved of their 
worries and hard times when Chris and James returned from Missouri on July U 
and 5 with money for supplies. The boys were of good cheer, and when they 
made plans to return to Missouri for another load of freight, the mother de- 
cided to go with them so she would not be left alone again. Two days after 
they left, Niels came home, and, finding the family gone, started in pursuit 
of them. He overtook them in a week's time. Together they proceeded north 
to Bryant, near Green River, Wyoming, where they all found work making adobes 
for buildings to house the railroad construction crews and accompanying busi- 
nesses. The Scows lived in a dugout at Bryant for a few months before moving 
to Blairtown, another railroad camp, where Niels worked as a carpenter, the 
boys foxind employment, and they built themselves a loghouse. Affairs went 
well until trouble broke out between two rival railroad camps and there were 
shootings and great destruction of property. That night, after dark, the 
Scows gathered their scanty belongings and fled from the camp. When they re- 
turned the next morning to collect their earnings, they were disappointed with 

llbid., pp 192-93. 


the little pay they received for their summer's work. They moved to Salt Lake 
City and remained there for the winter. 

In the spring of I869, Niels and the boys went back to work for the rail- 
road, this time west of Ogden. The mother, Ellen Marie, and daughter, Cath- 
rine, washed clothes for the construction workers, receiving 2$ cents per shirt. 
The family remained until the railroad was completed, and they personally wit- 
nessed the driving of the Golden Spike. The family was offered complementary 
railroad passes either to California or the East, and they chose passes to 
Wyoming (near Omaha), Nebraska. While there, they heard of a construction 
boom in Kansas City and moved there. The "big boom" tunied out to be a hoax, 
and Niels and his family experienced difficulty in finding employment. In 
their rented home, Ellen Marie took in boarders to help provide for the family. 
It was Sam's assignment to meet all the trains and try to persuade some of the 
arrivals to stay at the Scow boarding house. 

Two major events took place during the family's sojourn in Kansas City: 
their daughter Cathrine was married on 10 Feb I87I to Olof John Davidson, a 
seafaring Dane whom Sam had met at the train and brought to the Scow home for 
lodging o The second occurrence, a tragedy, was the death of Ellen Marie on 
30 Jan 1872; she was buried in Kansas City, Thereafter the family scattered. 
Jim and Chris went to Texas. Catherine, Olof, and Oliver moved in 1873 to 
Deseret, Utah. Sam remained in Kansas City to work in a blacksmith shop, 

Niels eventually also returned to Utah and settled near Oak City in 
Millard Co. Here he was md (2) 1 Apr 187$ to a long-time friend of the family 
from Aalborg, Anne Kirstine Petersen, the U5-year-old spinster sister-in-law 
of a close neighbor, Anders Christian Sorensen. She was a convert to the 
Church in Denmark in 18$5<. On 11 May 1882, two couples (Niels Scow and Anne 
Petersen, and their neighbors, Anders Sorensen and wife Inger Petersen — Anne's 
sister) drove together to Salt Lake City to take out their endowments and be 
sealed in the Endowment House, Two weeks later, on 27 May 1882, Anne Petersen 
passed away.-^ 

The following week, on 1 June 1382, Niels md (3) Maren Margrete "Maggie" 
Christensen, a 16-year-old girl from Deseret. The parish records of Tolne, 
Denmark, give her birthdate, but show her as "unchristened" in the Lutheran 
Church since she was a daughter of "Mormon" Jens Christensen & Margrete 
Jacobsen.^ She emigrated to the New World with her aged father in 1878.-^ 
For a while she lived with her brothers, sisters, and father in Pleasant 
Grove, Utah^ where she was baptized on 2U Aug 1878 by the family's good 
friend, Andrew Jenson (future Church historian),^ Her mother died in Denmark 
the following year, before the family had the funds and opportunity to send 
for her» 

In 1879, Maggie accompanied her brothers Jacob and Christian Christensen 
and her sister Mary Anna Eliason when they moved their families from Pleasant 
Grove to Deseret, Utah, The I88O census shows Maggie as Ih years of age at 
that time, and living with her sister Mary Anna. In Deseret, Maggie helped

in the home of Cathrine Scow Davidson and became acquainted with her father, 
Niels Scow. 

After Maggie's marriage to Niels Scow, they lived in Oak Creek (Oak City), 
where three children were born to them. They later lived in Deseret, across 
the street from Cathrine and Olof Davidson, where two more children were bom. 

Niels and Maggie were sincere members of the Church and aware of their 
spiritual blessings and obligations. The Bible provided daily scriptures for 
them to live by. But the book was used for more than a source of inspiration; 
it was the repository for a family record of several generations. In the sum- 
mer of 1890, Niels and Maggie traveled to Manti with their children and spent 
several days, doing temple work for Scow relatives.^ 

During his declining years, Niels became an invalid as a result of a hay- 
ing accident. While trying to secxire the top of a haystack with poles, he 
lost his balance and fell to the ground. The rope either broke or slipped, 
and the spring in the pole threw him some distance. The injuries left him 
bedfast, and Maggie administered to his needs for the several months he lin- 
gered. At this time she took in washings to help provide for the family. He 
died in the spring, on 22 Mar 1896, and wais b\u*ied in the Deseret Cemetery. 
Maggie was thus widowed at the age of 30 years and left with the care of four 
children, ranging in ages from 13 to h years . 

She md (2) 25 Nov 1897, Soren Jorgensen, also a native of Denmark. (See 
Chap XVII.) They lived in Oasis and Deseret, where Soren died in 190U. In 
1911, Maggie moved with her family to Hurricane, Utah, where her eldest son, 
Joseph Andrew Scow, had moved in 1909. She died there at the age of U9, on 
19 May 1915, and was buried 22 May in the Hurricane City Cemetery.

James emigrated from Denmark with his parents in 1866, crossing the 
Plains to Utah by oxteamo Since the wagon was filled with provisions and 
properties of ten individuals, James had to walk most of the way. In 1868, 
the year before completion of the transcontinental railway, he was employed 
as a teamster and shuttled back and forth from Misso\iri, carrying freight 
and sT^jplies from the East to the West. The following year he woriced for the 
railroad suid then took advsintage of complementary passes to Omaha, to where 
the family movedo They subsequently lived in Kanssis City. After his mother 
died in 1872, James and his brother Chris left Kansas City for Texas and 
thereafter made frequent moves throughout the West, He later settled in Dos 
Cabezas, in southeastern Arizona, where he worked in the copper mines. He 
died of cancer in Dos Cabezas at the age of 73 years. Picture on p 109.

He was named after his grandfather, Niels Christensen, a miller in Vadum 
parish, Aalborg. 

In 1866, at the age of lli, Chris emigrated from Denmark with his parents 
on the ship "Kenilworth." During the voyage, the ambitious lad found work 
as a cook's assistant. 

After arriving at Castle Garden, nearNew York City, the family rode by 
train and boat to Wyoming, Nebraiska, whence they crossed the Plains to Utah 
by oxteam, Chris walking all the way. Having crossed the Plains before the 
advent of the railroad, Chris qualified as a "Utah Pioneer." He later re- 
turned to Missouri as a teamster, to transport freight to the West. After- 
wards he worked on the construction of the transcontinental railway and was 
present at the driving of the Golden Spike in 1669. Following this event, 
he joined his father's family in its move to Kansas City and remained there 
until his mother's death in 1872. From there he went to Texas with his 
brother Jimo In May 187U he was in Oak City, Utah, where he and his brothers 
Jim and Oliver joined the United Order. Later he moved further West. His 
picture is on p 109. Chn, 2:

Sam was christened with the name "Soren Christian" and named after his 
uncle Soren Christiansen, who was present at his christening in the Lutheran 
Church . 1 

He emigrated to Utah with his parents in 1866, when he was 9 years of age. 
He became very ill with malaria fever during the trek across the Plains o At 
one time the family despaired his life, his mother wrapped a sheet about him, 
and a grave was dug for his burial » However, he recovered; and by the time the 
family readied the Valley, he was able to walk with helpo He joked later in 
life that somewhere in Wyoming he had a grave waiting for him. 

He worked with his father and brothers on the Union Pacific RR until it 
was completed at Promontory Point in 1869= He therefore witnessed the driving 
of the Golden Spike. With the complementary passes the railroad offered the 
family, he moved with them to Nebraska. Later they settled in Kansas City^, Mo, 
where the family ran a boarding house o It was Sam's special assignment to meet 
travelers at the transportation terminals and bring them to the Scow home to 

In Kansas City, Sam learned the trade of blacksmith and remained there, 
working, after the other members of his family left for points South and West. 
New frontiers beckoned him, and he likewise moved on. He married Phoebe, a 
native of lowa, and the two were living in Gallatin Co, Montana, in 1886, when 
their first child was born. His brother, Oliver Scow, also settled nearby in 
Gallatin Valley. In I898 Sam and his family moved to Glendora, in Los Angeles 
Co, Calif; and in 1910 they moved to Ghino, San Bernardino Co, Calif, where 
they owned a home on West Riverside Drive. 

Sam had only 3 months of formal schooling in his life; he was self- 
educated, having read extensively while lying on his stomach in front of a 
fire. He was a charter member of the Glendora Odd Fellows Lodge, a member of 
the Ghino Rebekah Lodge, and the First Christian Church of Ontario. He died 
at the home of his daughter, Mary Stull, in Porterville, where he had been 
visiting. He was 82 years old.

OLOF JOHN DAVIDSON, christened as OLE JORGENSEN, son of Jorgen Davidsen 
& Karen Nielsen, b 2U June l8h3, Fredericia, Vejle, Den, d 25 July 1897, Moun- 
tain View, Alta, Can; md 10 Feb 1871, Kansas City, Mo, £7 CATHRINE SCOW, chris- 
Aalborg, Aalborg, Den, d l6 Mar 1919, Cardston, Alta, Can, bur in Mountain View, 
dau of 26l£ Niels Scow & 268 Ellen Marie Jensen. 

In 1866, at the age of 13, Cathrine emigrated from Denmark with her par- 
ents <, The family first settled in Deseret, Utah. Her father's trade as carpen- 
ter required frequent moves by the family, to Fillmore, Corn Creek and Kanosh 
in Millard Co, to Salt Laike City, and to Ogden in northern Utah. As the trans- 
continental railway approached Utah, her father and brothers worked in the con- 
struction of the railroad, Cathrine and her mother also found employment by 
cooking, sewing, and laundering for the railroad crews. They witnessed the 
completion of the railroad and the driving of the Golden Spike in 1869. 

Complementary railroad passes to Omaha and later moves in the central 
states resulted in the Scow family's living in Kansas City, Mo, in 1870, where 
they ran a boarding house. To this home came Olof John Davidson, who met his 
future wife, Cathrine Scow. It is said that, at first sight, Cathrine stated, 
"There's the man I'm going to marry," and on 10 Feb 1871, this statement was 

Little is known of Olof John's youth except that he was a sailor on old 
sailing ships, and at one time was icebound in Greenland for a period of time. 
He was of medium build, had blue eyes, curly hair, was clean shaven at times, 
and had a good voice. In America he changed his name from Ole to Olof, 
Jorgensen to John, and took his father's surname of Davidson, using the Angli- 
cized form of Olof John Davidson. 

Two children were bom to Cathrine and Olof John in Kansas City. One daugh- 
ter, Mariane, died in 1872 at the age of 9 months. This was the same year that 
Cathrine' s mother died in Kansas City. 

The following year, the couple moved from Kansas City to Oak Creek, in 
Millard Co, Utah. Here, on 26 Oct 1873, he was baptized a member of the LDS 
Church and another child was bom. Before 1880 they moved to the neighboring 
town of Deseret and remained there for some 12 years. In Deseret, $ more 
children were bom to them and 2 passed away. The Davidsons lived across the 
street from Cathrine' s father, Niels Scow, in the vicinity of other Danish 
families, northwest of the present chapel site. Olof farmed, did other work, 
and accumulated some livestock, horses and wagons. 

About 1890 the Davidsons moved with their 5 surviving children to Star 
Valley in Wyoming. Another son was bom to them at Grover, in Star Valley. 

Ipar rec of Budolfi, Aalborg, Aalborg, Den, Book 13 , pt 1$3 (GS ser no 
8623, pt 6). 



At this time there was considerable talk about the desirability of land in 
Canada in what was then known as the North West Territories, Cardston had been 
settled in 188? by members of the LDS Church under the leadership of Charles 
Ora Card, and reports of the beauties and goodness of this prairie country 
beckoned the Davidsons in l892 to move by wagon from Wyoming to Cardston, a 
distance of 750 miles. They traveled with the Peter Allen family, and the 
Davidson girls helped drive the cattle and teams . One full day en route was 
spent in looking for Olof John's favorite dog Curly, but they had to travel on 
without it. They arrived in Cardston in Sept 1892 and were given help and 
lodging for the winter with the Hansens, who lived on the St Marys River. 

Charles Ora Card indicated that many cattle wintered out all winter in 
Southern Alberta, Hence, in Feb 1893, when a warm chinook harbingered the 
approach of spring, the Davidsons moved to Mountain View, then known as Fish 
Creek, The unpredictable weather changed, and as a result most of the David- 
sons' cattle died and the family was forced to sell their new wagon for the 
means to carry them over. The shortage of food and lack of comfortable shelter 
made life very hard. They lived in a sod-roofed dwelling that leaked when it 
rained and was very damp . 

On 7 Feb I89U, the eldest daughter, Carrie, married William Payne, a Royal 
Canadian North West Mounted Policeman. One of the main dishes for their wed- 
ding dinner was rutabagas, provided by friends of the family. The first night 
of their marriage, the parents, Olof and Cathrine, went to the home of the new- 
lyweds and set the pattern by kneeling in family prayer with them. 

Three months later, on I6 May I89I;, the tenth child was bom to Cathrine 
and Olof John, their first child born in Mountain View. At this time he was 
eager to remove his family from the sod-roofed dwelling and worked hard in 
building a loghouse. With anticipation and great hopes, they moved in before 
it was completely finished. Although it had no windows, fireplace or chimney, 
Cathrine gathered the children around a little fire built on the dirt floor 
and they all sang, "Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home." 

Their good fortune was shortlived, for in the spring of 1697 Olof John 
injured his leg and blood poisoning set in. Cathrine did what she could to 
help him with home remedies. A neighbor was sent by horse to Lethbridge, a 
distance of 75 miles, to summons the help of a doctor; but the latter advised 
that the condition had advanced too far. Cathrine and her children fasted and 
then retired to a patch of willows , where each child prayed in behalf of the 
father. However, he grew steadily worse and after great suffering, he died on 
the 25 June 1897, at the age of ^U years. The inhabitants of Mountain View 
remembered Olof John's passing as one of the saddest events in the early his- 
tory of the community. He was a good husband and father, who displayed love 
and harmony for his children and wife, and was loved and respected by his 
friends ajid neighbors. He left a U3-year-old widow, 6 children at home, a 
married daughter, and the family poorly established on a pioneer frontier. 

Cathrine struggled on in rearing her family. Friends and neighbors helped 
as best they could, but she worked in the fields, herself, running the farm to 
provide for her family. In spite of trying conditions, she maintained close 
ties with her family and taught them to be responsible individuals, to live the 
gospel, and observe the principle of tithing. She held church positions in the 
Primary and Relief Society. Handwork and knitting were other special talents. 
She is remembered for her kindness and consideration of others, regardless of 
their needs. She passed away in 1919 at the age of 61;, having reared her 
family as a widow for 22 years .

Soren joined the LDS Church in Denmark in 1872. His wife, Margrete 
Lars en -Clemens en, was baptized on 22 Aug 1883. Their membership in the Church 
incurred considerable disagreement in their respective families, and their 
parents disowned them^ This dissention helped crystallize their plans to 
emigrate to America to be with the main body of the Church, According to the 
following emigration record,^ they and 2 of their children crossed the Atlaintic 
Ocean in the boat "Wyoming," in the year 188U:

naming children, and the GS Index Bur card of Soren Jorgensen giving ordi-

Clemensen is an Anglicized version of her surname,

After a successful voyage on the North Sea, the emigrants arrived at 
Hull /England? on Thursday, August 28th, and the next day continued their 
journey by railroad to Liverpool, where a small company of Norwegian 
Saints, who had come direct from Norway (leaving Christiania August 22nd), 
joined them, and all went on boaird the steamer "Wyoming," which sailed on 
the 30th o The whole conpany now numbered U96 souls, including 31 return- 
ing missionaries, 222 Scandinavian Saints, 193 British and 50 Swiss and 
German Saints = 

The ship arrived in New York Tuesday evening, September 9th, The 
following morning the cor^^any landed at Castle Garden and late in the 
evening started westward by train from Jersey City^ This was the season s 
fourth cor^jany of emigrating Saints from Europe ^ 

It arrived in Ogden and Salt Lake City, all well, September 17th co 

The Jorgensen family settled in Deseret, Millard, Utaho There Soren is 
of record as being rebaptized 20 Oct 188U, and ordained an Elder on 
6 Nov 1865 »^ Three more children were born to them in Millard Co. The family 
is recorded in two wards, Deseret and Oasis, communities lying 6 miles apart. 

Other Danish families lived nearby and they fellowshipped with theme In 
1890 a group of such friends planned an excursion to the Manti Tensile <. They 
traveled by wagon with their children, camped out, and had a memorable cele- 
brationo On 2 July I89O, Soren and Margrete took out their endowments and had 
their children sealed to them. 3 Among the group of Danes was also the Niels 
Scow family. Soren later was married to the widow of Niels Scow, so that the 
date of their family ordinance work is the same, 

Soren' s wife, Margrete Larsen Clemensen, d 5 Dec I89I in Oasis o The fol- 
lowing year, 23 Nov 1892,^ he was married and sealed in the Manti Temple to 
Paulina Jensen, the widow of Jacob Nielsen, who also had died the year before 
on 30 Jan I89I, in Deseret o Paulina, mother of 8 children, had emigrated to 
Americs^, 23 Aug I88I;, with her husband Jacob Nielsen and family, and settled 
in Deseret near Paulina's relatives, the Scow family (see p 106b, pp 2U2-2U3)o 
A daughter, Lorena, was bom to Soren and Paulina on 17 Sep I89U in Oasis o 
However, before Lorena was bom, Soren and Paulina planned a separation and 
were later divorced „ Paulina moved with her children to Leamington, Utaho 

On 25 Nov 1897, Soren Jorgensen married as his Uth wife, Maren Margrete 
Christensen, widow of Niels Scowo Four children were bom to Soren and 
Maren Margrete, the first 2 children dying shortly after they were bomo 

Soren died 2$ Nov I90U and was bur in Deseret Cemetery (see map, p 6)0 
He is remembered as a "good man." If there was any sickness, death, or 
trouble in the community, the neighbors sent for himj and he brought comfort

Pleasant Gem, dau of Pehr Hanson Borg & Ingar Jonseon. Lineage, pp 215, 233. 

Hans Christian Mortensen was christened under that name in the Lutheran 
Church o^ His mother died when he was h years of age, and he was placed under 
the care of his grandparents and Aunt Ane Sorensen until his father remarried 
in 1838-39 » 

He commenced working when he was a young boy. Since in Denmark, at that 
time, jobs were scarce and wages were low, it took many hands to help sustain 
a large family. The Mortensen children at times had to beg for milk. Their 
schooling likewise was neglected because of the need for them to hire out. 
After moving from Fristrup, the family lived in Vreile, Vrejlev, and in the 
city of Hjorring, where work could be more readily found., ^ 

The message of Mormonism was introduced to Hans at the time of his 
father's funeral in 1855^ when a missionary of the Church bore his testimony. 
For 6 years he pondered these teachings. Then, in I86I, vrtien he was living in 
Hjorring, he had the opportunity to attend LDS meetings and to hear more of 
the gospelo His brother Marten Svend joined the Church on 12 May I86I; and 
one week later j on 20 May, Hans likewise entered the waters of baptism,^ 

Hans became enthusiastic about emigrating to Zion in order to be with 
the main body of the Church in the New World, During the remainder of the 
year he made plans to leave Denmark, and saved the $75 needed to pay for his 
transportation o His brother Marten was on an LDS mission at that time^, and 
Hans emigrated alone. 

In the first part of April 1862 he made his way to Copenhagen, where a 
group of emigrant saints had congregated. From there they took a boat to 
Kiel, in Sc hie swig-Hol stein; then a train to Altona, Germany, whence they 
traveled by steamship up the Elbe River to the city of Hamburg, On 15 Apr 
1862 he sailed from Hamburg on the ship "Franklin,"^ 

During the year 1862, no less than 1,556 souls sailed from Scandinavia 
in four companies, Andrew Jenson gives the following account of the company 
that embarked on the "Franklin": 

Ipar rec of Borglum, Hjor, Den, Book 5 , p 25 (GS ser no 9001, pt 2),

'^"Scand Mission Emig Rec," 1862, Ship List of "Franklin," p 119, 



On Tuesday, April 15th, the ship "Franklin" (Capt. Robt. Murray) 
sailed from Hamburg with Ul3 emigrating Saints, nearly all from the 
Aalborg and Vendyssel Conferences. They were in charge of Chr- A. 
Madsen, an Elder returning home. He chose Jens C, A, Weibye and Lauritz 
Larsen as his counselors „ On board the ship the company was organized 
into eight districts with the following brethren as presidents: Jens C. 
Thorpe, Jens Christensen Kornum, Niels Mortensen (Lynge), Lars P. 
Fjeldsted, Co P. Borregaard, Jens Co S. Frost, Thomas Larsen and Jens 
Andersen. Jens Fo Mortensen was appointed baggage master, Anthon H. 
Lund, interpreter, and Chr„ Andersen captain of the guard, 

Jens Vfeibye gave the following account of happenings during the voyage of the 
"Franklin" across the Atlantic: 

We went on board the "Franklin" in the evening of Tuesday (April 
8th) and I was appointed to locate the emigrants in their bunks below 
deck. These bunks, l60 in number, were so wide that three persons 
easily could have room in one of them side by side. After getting our 
baggage in order^ we received our rations of provisions. These con- 
sisted of beef, pork, peas, beans, potatoes, pearl barley, rice, prunes, 
syrup, vinegar, pepper^ coffee, tea, sugar, butter, rye bread, sea bis- 
cuits, water, flour, salted herring, salt, and oil (for the lamps). We 
lighted 11 lanterns every night, 6 of which belonged to the ship and 5 
to the emigrants. We hired an extra cook in Hamburg for 90 rigsdaler, 
and besides him two of our brethren served as assistant cooks. We thus 
had our dinners nicely cooked in about the following routine, viz., 
Sunday we had sweet soup; Monday, pea soup; Tuesday and Wednesday, rice; 
Thursday, pea soup; Friday, barley mush, and Saturday herring and 

Some of the emigrants carried the measles with them from home and 
the disease soon spread to all parts of the ship, so that no less than 
UO persons, mostly children, were attacked at once. Many of the emi- 
grants were also suffering with diarrhea, which caused much weakness of 
body. We lost the appetite for sea biscuits, but learned to soak them 
in water or tea from 8 to 12 hours, which softened them so that they 
could become more palatable. The sick were served twice a day with por- 
ridge made from barley, rice or sago, and almost every day pancakes 
could be had by the hundreds for the sick who could not eat the "hard 
tack" (sea biscuits). Wheat bread was also baked for some of the old 
people. We held a council meeting every night, and the sanitary condi- 
tions of the ship's apartments were attended with great care. Three 
times a week the ship was thoroughly fumigated by burning tar. A 
spirit of peace prevailed and very few difficulties occurred. The cap- 
tain and the crew were good-natured and obliging, and so were the cooks, 
who even served the sick when they were not on duty. 

We held at times meetings of worship on the upper or lower decks, 
and every morning at 5 o'clock the signal for rising was given by the 
clarionet, or accordeon. At 7 aom, and 9 p.m, a similar signal was 
sounded calling the Saints to assemble in their several districts for 
prayer. Most every day we amused ourselves a short time by dancing on 
the deck to music played by some of our brethren or members of the crew. 
We could thus have had an enjoyable time, had it not been for the sorrow 
occasioned by the many sick and dying among us, on account of the 

•^Hist of Scand Mission, pp 162-63- 


measles o Up to this date (May 27th) 3 adults and U3 children have died, 
nearly all from measles. During the last few days the chicken pox has 
also broken out among us and four cases have already developed. We have 
had head winds most of the time, otherwise we could have been in New 
York before now, for the '»Franklin" is a first-class ship^ We have been 
very little troubled with sea sickness » 

The arrival of the "Franklin" in New York and the ensuing journey of the 
Saints by rail and boat to Florence, Nebraska (the stopping off place that 
year where preparations were made before the Saints undertook the trek across 
the western plains to Utah) are recorded by Andrew Jenson as follows s 

On Thursday, May 29th, in the forenoon, the "Franklin" arrived in 
New York, The emigrants were placed on a transport steamer to be landed 
at Castle Garden, but on arriving at the wharf, they were not permitted 
to go ashore, because of some cases of measles yet existing among them. 
After 18 of the sick had been taken into the hospital, the rest were re- 
turned to the "Franklin" and there remained on board two more nights and 
a day. Finally, on May 31st, they were landed at Castle Garden, where 
they were met by Elders Chas, Co Rich, John Van Cott and other brethren » 

A part of the emigrants did not have means to carry them further on 
their way to Zion than New York, but through the generosity of some of 
the Saints who were more fortunate, a sufficient sum was raised to take 
all these poor Saints along, and with rejoicing the journey was then re= 
sumed, leaving New York May 31st,, at 9 p,m., by extra railway train to 
Albany, where they arrived the next morning (June Ist), From there the 
journey was continued by train via Syracuse, Rochester, Niagara, Windsor, 
Detroits and Chicago to Quincy, Ill«, and thence by steamboat across the 
Mississippi River to Hannibal, Moo, and again by train to St, Joseph, Mo 
where they arrived June 6tho The following day they boarded the steam- 
boat "Westwind" and left St, Joseph at 10 p<,m,, after having spent the 
"Day of Pentecost" in a way that was anything but pleasant (as there was 
very poor and crowded accomodation for so many people on this compara- 
tively small vessel). The company arrived at Florence, Neb,, on Monday, 
June 9th, at 10 o'clock pcm. Hans Co Hansen's company, which crossed 
the ocean in the ?Humboldt," arrived there a week before. Among the i;8 
persons who died in the "Franklin" company during the voyage on the sea 
was Broo Jens Andersen from Veddem (Aalborg Conference), Denmark, who 
with his own means had assisted 60 or 70 poor Saints to emigrate. He 
died on the North Saa on the 25th of April, soon after the ship had left 
Cuxhaven, On the way from New York to Florence, two children died, of 
whom one was the 1$ months old daughter of Jens C, A, Weibye, Eleven 
persons (U adults and 7 children) died while staying at Florence and a 
young girl died on the Plains, making in all 62 of the "Franklin" com- 
pany who died between Hamburg and Salt Lake City, 

On Tuesday, June 10th, the emigrants pitched their tents a short 
distance north of Florence, and the necessary purchases of oxen, wagons, 
cows, etc, were attended to. Those who crossed the Plains by the 
Church teams were organized into messes to receive their provisions from 
the commissary of the company, , , „ The emigrants remained in camp for 
several weeks before beginning the journey across the Plains. A few 
days before the company left camp, Florence and vicinity was visited by 
a terrible tornado, accompanied by rain, thunder and lightning, by which 

•'•Ibid,,pp I63-6U. 


two of the brethren were killed and Elder Jos. W. YounfVy received severe 
wounds from a wagon-box which blew down upon him; after* the accident, he 
was carried to a place of safety in an unconscious condition, but re- 
covered after a while. The tents and wagon covers of the company were 
badly torn and shattered on that occasion. 

From Florence, Nebraska, Hans walked across the Plains, "leading two 
cows." Jens Weibye reported in his journal that "nearly all able-bodied 
men and women had to walk most of the way. "3 

Usually there was plenty of grass for the cattle and oxen, but not always 
was there plenty of fuel for cooking, and the women had to content themselves 
with cooking over fires made from sunflower stems and buffalo chips. For- 
tunately, good weather and health prevailed during the journey across the 

After arriving in Salt Lake City, Hans settled in Mt Pleasant. Then, 
because the Indians threatened the community, he along with some of the set- 
tlers moved to Sphraim for the winter. On 17 May I863 his church membership 
was transferred from Ephraim to Mt Pleasant, 5 where he established himself 
in his first home^ located on the southwest side of the town. He constinicted 
a house of white and gray adobes he made himself. 

Here at Mt Pleasant he was married to Hanna Borg on 22 Feb 1865 by 
Bishop William S. Seeley.° She was a member of the Norrkflping LD3 Confer- 
ence in Sweden, who emigrated from the Old World at the age of 21 with her 
9-year-old brother James (Jons) in 1862, the same year that Hans, her future 
husband, emigrated. Hanna and her brother left Hamburg, Germany, on I8 Apr 
1862, on the ship "Electric," with 335 other emigrating Saints.' On 6 June 
they arrived in New York, whence they traveled by train and boat to Florence, 
Nebraska, arriving there on 19 June, She and her brother crossed the Plains 
with the John B„ Murdock's Company." According to a published sketch in the 
Deseret News of 2U Sep l862s 

Of the Sccindinavian Saints who crossed the Plains with the Church 
teams 38U souls went with Capto John R. Murdock's Company, which left 
Florence July 2Uth and arrived in Salt Lake City, Sept. 27th. The whole 
company consisted of about 700 souls and 65 teams. On the journey lli 
persons died, 2 couples were married, and 2 children born. 

Hanna Borg-s mother, an older brother Lars P., and an infant named 
Nathalia Borg, had come to Utah two years before, in l860.'^ Two years after

Sanpete County was the scene of disastrous Indian uprisings. During 
the Black Hawk War that started in 1865, a number of cattle was stolen from 
the settlers of Mt Pleasant, and from 20-50 men were sent from time to time 
in campaigns against them« The settlement had a standing army and night 
guard o Hans and his brother Marten Svend (who had recently emigrated to 
America and was staying with Hans) joined the other pioneers during some of 
these Indian skirmishes, 

Hans Christian and his brother Marten Svend were both christened in the 
Lutheran Church under the surname of MOKTENSEN"^ and their membership in the 
LDS Church in Denmark was shown as MORTENSSN«-^ According to his emigration 
records, the Mt Pleasant Ward records, the I88O census, and his death and 
cemetery records, Hans Christian maintained the surname of MORTENSEN, Only 
infrequently was he recorded as ELIASONo*^ His brother Marten Svend, however, 
used the surname of ELIASON as early as 186? and maintained it throughout the 
remainder of his life. 

Although Hans* brother Marten Svend later moved to Utah and Millard 
Counties, the two remained very close in spirit and they frequently visited 
each other. They often met in Salt Lake City at Conference time. On one 
such occasion, 9 Apr 1672, Hans and Marten went together to obtain their 
Patriarchal Blessings from Patriarch Charles W„ Hyde,-' 

Hans owned residential property in the southern part of Mt Pleasant, and 
owned and farmed I8 acres of land 3 miles west of town. His home at 208 West 
Uth South, Mt Pleasant, still stands, although it has been stuccoed and re- 
modelledo (See picture, p 157-) Originally it was surrounded with a high pole 
fence, supported by capped posts, and graced by two pine trees in the front 
yard. The home is presently occupied by the Orval Simmons family. 

Ten children were bom to Hans and Hanna in Mt Pleasant, 5 sons and 5 
daughters. Not one of their 5 sons lived to maturity, 3 died during infancy 
and 2 died in I886 during an epidemic of dphtheria. The years between 1885- 
1889 were saddened with the death of the father Hans in 1885, the 2 boys who 
died in I886, and the death of the mother in I889, Their daughters Ingri 
had married James W, Morrison in 1887-8, and Hannah had married Andrew 
Romero in I888; but the untimely deaths of the parents left 3 unmarried 
daughters orphaned and alone to find their places in the world, Matilda 
married Christian Matesen in I89O and remained in Sanpete County— the younger 
daughters, Anna and Christine, moved elsewhere to find employment.

Christian is shown in the Kirkeby parish records of the Lutheran Church as 
Rasmus Christian Mathiassen, b 17 May i860, a son of "Mormon Mathias Mathiassen 
and Mormon Dorthea Rasmussen „" He is shown as "unbaptized," indicating that 
his parents, then members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 
had not conformed with the Lutheran practice of christening a child shortly 
after birth o-"" 

His parents later moved to Oster Skerninge, Svendborg, where his brother 
Niels Jacob Mathiassen was bom 6 May 1863 and is shown as "unbaptized" on the 
Lutheran parish records. The family later moved to Ollerup, Svendborg, where 
his sister Anna Christina Mathiassen was bom on 6 Nov 1865 and also shown as 
"unbaptized" in the Lutheran Church.-^ 

According to early LDS Church records in Denmark, Christisin Matesen's 
father was baptized in l85U in Falster, his mother in the year 1859 in Hosrus; 
and the two were members of the Svendborg Branch of the Church.^ Christian 
and his brother Niels Jacob were given children's blessings in the LDS Church.^

Copenhagen 15 July 1870 on the steamer "Milo," with a company of 3U8 emigrating 
saints under the leadership of President Jesse N. Smith, who was returning from 
a mission in Scandinavia. The History of the Scandinavian Mission states: 

The emigrants arrived at Hull, England, in the evening of July 18. 
The same night they proceeded by railway to Liverpool, arriving there on 
the 19th, in the morning » A seven-year- old girl (Ida Kirs tine Outzen) 
died on the train and was buried in Liverpool. On Wednesday morning, 
JxlLj 20th, the con?)any embarked together with seven English Saints and 
two returning missionaries on the steamer "Minnesota," which sailed from 
Liverpool the same day in the afternoon. 

Besides the Scandinavian Saints, there were on board 350 Irish and 
German emigrants who, however, were entirely separated from the Saints 
during the voyage o After a successful voyage, the "Minnesota" arrived 
safely in New York on the 1st day of August, 1670, and the emigrants pro- 
ceeded westward by railway train the following day; they arrived in Salt 
Lake City, August lOtho Pres . Brigham Young, Daniel H. Wells, George A. 
Smith, and other Church leaders met the conpany between Salt Lake City 
and Ogden, and on their arrival in Salt Lake City the emigrants were re- 
ceived by Bishop Edward Hunter and others » 

After arriving in Utah, Christian, his mother Dorthea Rasmussen, and his 
brother and sister settled in Sanpete County near Mount Pleasant, Thinking 
that her husband would never emigrate to America to be with her, Dorthea 
Rasmussen was married and sealed 18 Dec 1871 in the Endowment House to Peter 
Nielsen o^ 

Christian's father came to America seven years after Christian and his 
mother. He sailed from Liverpool on 27 June 1877 on board the steamer 
"Wisconsin," and arrived in New York City, 7 July. His conqaany continued the 
journey by rail under the direction of Captain John Rowberry, and arrived in 
Salt Lake City, lU J\ily„-^ He settled near Redmond, Sevier County, where he 
remarried to Msurgaret and died between 1890-1900, with burial in the 
Redmond City Cemetery. 

Upon reaching maturity. Christian shortened his surname to Matesen or 
Mateson, whereas his brother maintained the surname of Mathiassen. 

On 3 Jan 1890 Christian Matesen md Matilda Mortensen, a descendant of 
pioneer fanilies of Moimt Pleasant. She experienced considerable sadness dur- 
ing her girlhood with the deaths of her five brothers and her father and 
mother. She and two sisters were thus orphaned and lived alone until her mar- 
riage to Chris Matesen. 

As a result of hard work and determination, Chris and Matilda acquired 
130 acres of choice land in the vicinity of Chester, Sanpete County, where

26 Feb 1958, Price, Utah. Pictures on p 158. | 

Andrew's mother, a convert to the LDS Church in Sweden, emigrated to Utah 
in 1862. His father, John Romero, was of Spanish descent; when he was 8 or 9 
years old, his parents were killed by the Indians at Santa Fe, New Mexico, and 
he was kidnapped and reared as one of the tribe for over 10 years . During the 
Black Hawk War, he was brought to Utah to assist the Indians in their battle 
against the whites. However, he deserted the Indians to join the Nauvoo 
Legion, and served as interpreter for Brig Genl Snow in the year 1865. (His 
service record was signed by H . B. Clauson, Adj Genl of the Nauvoo Legion.) i 

After his marriage to Cecelia Pehrson, he continued to live in Sanpete County, j 

where Andrew was bom, 

Andrew started working for others when he was 13 j herding and shearing 
sheep. When he was 17, he met Hannah Mortensen, then l6, whose father had died | 
and she had found work in the Harriet Jeff's home, on the old Sally Truscutt 
place. On 5 June 1888, Andrew came to visit Hannah. He had a 22 calibre pistol i 
in his pocket, but he did not want anyone to see it and hid it under a comer \ 

of the carpet in the bedroom. While he was in the kitchen teasing Hannah's 
sister, Annie, about a ring, Hannah went into the bedroom to clean the room 
and found the gun. She ran into the kitchen and asked if it was loaded. 
Andrew started to say, "No, but you don't want to fool with it," when she 
pointed it at his head and pulled the trigger. The shot struck him at the 
edge of the left nostril, below the eye. Two doctors were called, and both I 

despaired his life. His mother was so angry at Hannah, she threatened to 
have her tried for murder and hung if he died, Andrew sviggested marriage to 
Hannah in order to avoid persecution. Consequently, they called in a Justice 
of the Peace (Hamessmaker Larsen), who married them shortly after midnight 
on -6 June. This also happened to be Andrew's l8th birthday — Hannah turned 17 
in the following October. (He recovered from the accident, but xrays just 
before his death, 70 years later, showed that he carried the lead during the 
remainder of his life . ) 

Andrew was an ambitious man, and versatile in his abilities. At differ- i 

ent times, besides herding and shearing sheep in both Utah and Idaho, he had i 

barber shops in both states. For a while he worked in saw mills, and later i 

he lay brick in Utah, Idaho, and California. For 10 yesirs he was a Forest 
Ranger on the Wasatch Range, with headquarters at both Mink Creek and Paris, 
Idaho. In 19Uli he tended a fire-lookout station in California. His last job ' 

was carrying mail from McCammon to Robin, Idaho. 

Andrew and Hannah were a devoted couple, staunch members of the Church, 
and set a good example for their children. After her children were grown, 




Hannah gathered records and news clippings of her family and pursued vicari- 
ous work for them. Proud of her lineage, she became a member of the Daughters 
of the Utah Pioneers. Thirteen children were bom to her, 11 in Mt Pleasant 
and 2 in Paris, Idaho. All but one grew to maturity. These 12 outlived her-- 
she passed away of pneumonia on 13 Apr 1937 at Soda Springs, where she waa 

Andrew survived Hannah by 21 years, and in that time married twice. After 
the death of his third wife, he lived alone, but later gave up his home in 
Logan to be near his children in Soda Springs. He was subsequently struck by 
an automobile while crossing a road and railroad track. He lingered for 
7 weeks but never fully regained consciousness. He died at the age of 88 and 
was buried in Soda Springs by the side of Hannah. Chn of Andrew & Hannah, 13:

Richardson, b 25 Dec l865, Coalville, Summit, Utah, d 11 Dec 1929, Prove,

88 ANNIE MORTENSEN, b 17 Feb 1873, Mt Pleasant, Sanpete, Utah, d U June 19U5, 
Payson, Utah, bur Goshen Cem, dau of Hans Christian Mortensen & Hanna Borg. 

Annie's parents both died when she was a young girl, and she left Mt 
Pleasant to find work. At this time the mines in the Tintic Range were 
active, and she found employment in Eureka. It was there that she met Nich- 
olas in 1890, and they were married in 1892. Pictures on p 1^7. 

Because her husband was born on Christmas morning, he was given the 
appropriate name of Nicholas. When he was still quite young, his parents 
moved to Goshen. Shortly afterwards, his mother died while giving birth to 
a second daughter, and was buried with the child. His father subsequently 
married Sarah Price Jones. 

Nicholas worked hard from the time of his early boyhood; he found em- 
ployment in Mammoth, and later in the Old Beck Mine at Eureka, where he 
learned the mining business under Dennis Sulliian. Later he, his father, and 
Judge A= A. Noon acquired the Old Iron Mines and shipped iron to the American 
Smelting & Refining Co smelter. In 1907 the mines were sold to Reed Smoot and 
the late C. E. Loose. They named their organization the Iron King Mining Co 
and asked Nicholas to be super intendant, which position he held until the mine 
closed in 1909. He then purchased a farm in Goshen and moved his family back 
to it. In 1917 the Iron King Mine resumed work, and Nicholas returned to his 
job as superintendent. In 1919 he moved his family back to Eureka. 

With the thought in mind of making it easier for their children to 
acquire a good education, Annie and Nicholas purchased a home in Provo in 
I92U and moved their family from Eureka. However, Nicholas continued to work 
at the Iron King Mine; he and his son Clinton for some time shipped iron to 
the Columbia Steel Co at Provo. He died suddenly of pneumonia on 8 Dec 1929 
and was interred in Goshen Cem. He was known as a kind husband and father, 
and for his wonderful sense of humor and his honesty. Annie survived him I6 
years. Chn of Annie & Nicholas, 7s

Ruby attended schools in Goshen and Eureka, and later the Brigham Yoxing 
Univ. She taught school in Genola during the year 191ii-l5 before her marriage 
to Conrad. He emigrated to Utah with his parents in I89U, and lived in 
Ephraim 2 years before the family moved to Goshen. After their marriage in 
1915, Ruby and Conrad made their home in Elberta, Utah. At this time there 
were no LDS families in the vicinity. In 1922, LDS families started moving in 
and the two were instrumental in organizing the ward. Ruby served as 1st coun- 
selor and then president of the Primary, and teacher in Relief Society. They 
ran a store in Elberta from 1920-25. After selling the business, they trav- 
eled extensively, spending winters in California and summers in the mountains.

Tromoy is a small island off the southeastern coast of Norway, near the 
city of Axendalo Many of its inhabitants are fishermen and sea-goirtg individ- 
uals o According to the diary of his grandson (Marten Svend Eliason), Eliaa 
Mortensen was a "Norway sea captain, lost at sea," Early Tromoy parish rec- 
ords and those for the years 1808-1825 are missing; likewise the I8OI census 
records are anconplete, making it difficult to establish his parentage. How- 
ever as a sea captain, he traveled extensively and could have originated any- 
where in Norway. He indicated he was of Naeskile at the time of his marriage 
in 1802 J no record can be found of him after I8O6, when his son Hans was bom.
